Tomorrow is St. Patrick's Day. I have let this day of green almost slip by this year without any notice. When I was a child, my Mother made a big deal out of St. Patrick's Day. She always made sure that we had something green on so we would be protected from a pinch. (If you didn't wear green on St. Patrick's Day, anyone could pinch you. Was this just peculiar to my family, or did/does everyone else do this? I wonder.......hmmm) My brother always tried to wear just a green thread, draped, somewhere, because, if someone pinched you when you were really wearing green, you could pinch them back 10 times. He really liked that. I remember one year my Mom made green tapioca pudding for dessert. That was a real treat. So...Celebrate St. Patrick's Day with Green Weecakies. Yes, the cake inside is green. Green Velvet to be exact. (Thanks bakerella.com for the idea) They are shaped into cupcakes, dipped into milk chocolate for the cupcake cup, then into white chocolate for the top. The shamrocks are cut from green chocolate and carefully placed atop the cake. Did you notice that the shamrock leaves are hearts? Do you love St. Patrick's Day? I "4-heart" do. Have a happy one!
