Green Velvet Cupcakes Recipe

These cupcakes are just a clever coloring variation of the normal Red Velvet Recipes.  I saw this on Bakerella and decided to give it a try.  The cupcakes are moist and so yummy!  Plus, they are green and what is better on St. Patrick’s day than something green!

I frosted these with a cream cheese frosting and they were delicious! Add a few green sprinkles to the top and you have a treat fit for the day!   I did have to use a lot of green food coloring and I still probably could have used more so make sure you are stocked with green food coloring before starting these.  I love how just adding different colors of food coloring can change this recipe into a treat for any holiday!

Treats at my house do not last long and these were no exception.  The kiddos loved them!  I don’t have time for fussy complicated recipes so this one was perfect!  I think this will be one of my staple recipes!
