St Patricks Day Paleo Cupcakes


Do you celebrate St. Patrickā€™s Day? I come from an area of the country (hello, Boston!) where celebrating St. Patrickā€™s Day is almost as big as Christmas. People get really into it around here! I thought Iā€™d make some green cupcakes to celebrate! These cupcakes, despite the green frosting (which is natural, no food coloring!) are super yummy. note: I researched a lot of ways for natural food coloring - although I went with avocado, there are many different ways to dye your frostings naturally!
