Green Velvet Cupcakes with Clovers

Green Velvet Cake
2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
2 cups sugar
2 Tablespoon cocoa
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 eggs
1 1/2 cups oil
1 cup buttermilk
1 Tablespoon vinegar
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 teaspoons green gel food coloring

Cream Cheese Filling 
1 8 oz. pkg. cream cheese
1/3 cup sugar
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 egg

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Put cupcake liners in muffin tin
  • Beat eggs and butter. Mix in oil, buttermilk, vinegar, and vanilla.
  • Place all the dry ingredients in large mixing bowl.
  • Add wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix on medium-high  until completely combined.
  • Mix in color.

Fill muffin cups 2/3 cup full.

Make filling.

Beat salt, cream cheese, sugar, and egg until fluffy. 

Put one heaping tablespoon of cheese mixture in the center of each cupcake. Add another 2/3 cup on top of the cheese mixture.

Bake at 350* for around 15 minutes or until tops start to brown and a toothpick comes out clean.

Then make your favorite frosting and color green. To make the little clovers I used a Wilton 2D tip. Watch video below.

  4. They look yummy Marcie! "I DEFINITELY gotta try that..." I found you at the The Great Blog Train blog hop and following you now.

  5. These look great! I'm not a fan of red velvet but Green? Right up my alley - isn't it funny how we each think one thing is better than another andyet they are virtually the same?

  6. I love how these turned out, and so festive too! I would love for you to come by and link this or another project/recipe at my brand new link party!! Hope to see you!
