Can't pinch me

Wednesday, March 17, 2010

I'm green.  
Not my shoes... 
not my pants... 
not my shirt... 
nor my underwear.
Not my eyes...
not my hair...
not my jewerly...
but yes, I'm wearing green.  

It's probably my favorite sweater and the only clothing I have green.  I'm thankful it was cool enough outside to wear it.  

I made a quick run by Terry's office this morning to bring him some treats I made last night and since I reminded him yesterday he better wear green, I was shocked to not see any.  I got my fingers ready to give him a pinch and he said... "I'm green but you just can't see."  So I gave him the benefit of the doubt and hugged him instead.  Something about that hug made me feel like today is going to be a good day.

I don't believe I have any Irish in me, but who knows maybe the luck with be with me anyway.

Happy St. Patty's Day, y'all!!!

I have to give credit to Picky Palate for this recipe.  I haven't made them yet, but if time permits this afternoon... I'm gonna try it!

Lucky Green Velvet Baby Cakes

1 Box yellow cake mix
4 eggs
1/2 Cup water
1/2 Cup vegetable oil
1 small box instant vanilla pudding mix
1/2 Cup plain yogurt or sour cream
5-8 drops Green decorating paste (food coloring will work, just won’t be as bright green)

8 oz softened cream cheese
1 stick softened butter
1 lb powdered sugar
Yellow food coloring or decorating paste is what I used
Gold Pearl Dust or Sprinkles if desired
1.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  In a stand or electric mixer, add cake mix, eggs, water, oil, pudding, and yogurt.  Beat on medium for 1 1/2 minutes.  Slowly beat in 5-8 drops of green decorating paste until you get desired color of green.  Scoop batter into paper lined mini cupcake tins.  Bake for 15-18 minutes or until cooked through.  Let cool completely.
2.  To prepare frosting, beat cream cheese and butter until creamy.  Slowly add powdered sugar until creamy and thick.  Divide frosting into 2 bowls then add in a few drops of yellow food coloring or decorating paste into one.
3.  Frost cupcakes and sprinkle with gold pearl dust or sprinkles if desired.

Makes 36 mini cupcakes
