Ireland, and Dublin in particular is one of my favourite places in the world. My Grandparents lived there since my Dad was at university and so I have spent all of my childhood visiting, and now whenever I go back to England to visit I make sure I ALWAYS get to Dublin to go back, to see my Granny, to wander around the city and enjoy it! I've even been lucky enough to spend time there during St. Patrick's weekend, the parade there was incredible :-)
Since moving to Canada, I have discovered that North America LOVES St. Patrick's Day - perhaps more than England does?! You all go nuts for it! I have no problem with that, I love it too. What a fun celebration for the patron saint of Ireland.
Last week I got crafty and made my Lucky Pocket Sneakers and Shamrock bunting, see that post here but this weekend I have been baking!
I'm been on a cupcake roll recently... I have some I still need to post up from last week but for this weekend I went on an Irish/ St. Patrick's Day theme and made some chocolate mini cupcakes with a mint buttercream frosting. I decorated them with some green decorations, and my favourite part - the fondant shamrocks :-)
Michael's served me well with a new set of mini cupcake cases, the green spotty ones were perfect for this project!
I hope everyone has had a wonderful March Break if you were off school, and a fun filled St. Patrick's Day! I know the crafts and baking I have seen on blogs and link parties this week have been SO great - can't wait to see more of your creations next week :-)
