  • Duncan Hines Vanilla Cake Mix
  • Wilton gel food coloring in Green
  • Duncan Hines Vanilla Frosting
  • Green Sprinkles
  • Four leaf clover Cupcake Liners (Purchased from Hobby Lobby)
  • Muffin Pan


  1. Mix up your cake mix according to the instructions on the box. Since this was a very simple vanilla cake mix all I needed was the mix, eggs, water and vegetable oil.
  2. Once the cake mix is mixed up add in the green gel food coloring. This was the perfect step to let my 5 year old son help out with.
  3. Stir up the gel coloring until the entire mix turns green. Depending on what shade you are looking for you can add in as much gel coloring as you wish.
  4. Now line your muffin pan with your cupcake liners and pour in the green batter. Fill the cups about 1/3 full leaving plenty of room for them to rise up.
  5. I was able to make a total of 18 cupcakes with this cake batter so plenty for an upcoming party. Place them in the oven for 13 minutes at 375 degrees and they will come out Perfect!
  6. Allow the cupcakes to cool for at least 15 minutes and grab your vanilla frosting and spoon it into a piping bag.
  7. *Tip: If you don’t have a piping back just take a Ziploc baggie and cut the tip out to any size! Pipe the frosting on top and top off with some delicious green sprinkles!
  8. Now pick one up and indulge in the heavenly goodness of these St. Patrick’s Day treats!
