When it comes to baked goods these days, it seems you can do no wrong by mixing up a red velvet cake recipe. In the last few years, the phenomenon has gone from being a joke in Steel Magnolias (the "bloody" groom's cake!) to America's favorite dessert.
But on St. Patrick's Day, fuggetabout RED -- green rules supreme! Just ask my fellow Chicagoans who dye the entire Chicago River green! So, how about baking cupcakes that have the best of both worlds -- velvet and green? Ooooh ... yes, I know you're with me on this! And who better to turn to for said recipe than Irish baking diva Christi Johnstone, who writes the adorable, mouth-watering blog, LoveFromtheOven.com? This here adorable cupcake is her own work, and you know you wanna piece of that.
