I don't really see the point of St. Patrick's day other than another of our nation's days to get completely smashed, but the kid's love the green day and have been planning what they will wear to church on the 17th (I wonder what the pastor will wear). We have a good old fashioned potluck after church and I thought it'd be fun to go with the theme of the day.
I love pistachio. Pistachio is green. Pistachio cupcakes + pistachio frosting = pistachio perfection.
To offset the GREEN all over, I added some sparkly purple sugar. I'm pretty happy with color combo. I'll have to do it again.
Happy St. Patty's Day! Eat green cupcakes instead of drinking green beer, though neither is terribly healthy.
