Green velvet cupcakes for St. Patrick's Day

March 9, 2009 |  4:16 pm

Sprinkles' Green Velvet Cupcake Move over, red velvet, there's a new cupcake fad -- at least temporarily. For only five days beginning this Friday, Sprinkles will be offering two limited edition, St. Patrick's Day-themed cupcakes.

The green velvet cupcake is a dyed green version of Sprinkles' Southern-style chocolate cake topped with cream cheese frosting. The Bailey's Irish chocolate cupcake features Belgian dark chocolate cake topped with cream cheese frosting dosed with Bailey's and topped with a fondant shamrock. $3.25 each; available Friday to St. Patrick's Day. (For more cupcakes, we recommend the Great L.A. Cupcake Map.)
