Well, I blew it. I didn’t look up the definition of a Shamrock until these were eaten and gone. Apparently a Shamrock is a 3 leaf clover. I was thinking because a 4 leaf clover is supposed to bring luck this would be a perfect St. Patrick’s Day Shamrock cupcake. Ugh! In my defense, I a search within Pinterest for St. Patrick’s Day did bring up both 3 and 4 leaved clovers. It’s too late for me to fix it, but if you want, you can adjust this down to 3 hearts. Here’s what I did to make these easy FOUR leaf clover cupcakes!:

You’ll Need:

  • Cupcakes iced with green frosting
  • Gold Sprinkles
  • Green Fruit Gummy Slices – I found these in the candy section of Wal-Mart – they are with the novelty candies that hang on hooks – A picture of one is below
  • Scissors

Now, on to the Clover!

  • St. Patrick's Day Cupcake
  • Generously sprinkle your green cupcake with gold sprinkles
  • St. Patrick's Day Cupcake
  • Looking at the fruit slices, with its nice curvy top – I see a perfect opportunity for a couple of heart shapes in each slice
  • St. Patrick's Day Cupcake
  • If you go 2 curves over and slice down at and angle you will have a heart shape
  • St. Patrick's Day Cupcake
  • Place these hearts together points touching for a 3 or 4 leaf clover!
  • Use the remaining fruit slice to cut a stem for your clover
  • That’s it! You’re done!
