St Patrick’s Day is the perfect time to green-ify your cupcakes!


      454 g / 2 cups Mirage Margarine, room temperature


      1 kg / 4 cups Icing sugar, sifted


      15 ml / 1 tbsp Vanilla extract


      30 ml / 2 tbsp 35% cream


      30 ml / 2 tbsp Irish Cream liqueur


      Green Food Colouring


      1 batch of

Double Chocolate Cupcakes


    1. In a large bowl, cream the Mirage Margarine on high speed with an electric mixer for 3 minutes, until smooth and fluffy, scraping down the sides of the bowl several times with a rubber spatula.
    2. Add the vanilla extract. Mix on low speed until the extract is just combined with the margarine.
    3. Add 1 cup of the icing sugar to the creamed margarine, and mix on low speed just until incorporated.
    4. Continue adding the icing sugar 1 cup at a time, mixing well after each addition.

    1. Once all of the icing sugar is incorporated, add the green food colouring to the desired shade and the Irish Cream liqueur, and mix the frosting on high speed for 5 minutes. Taste the icing: you should no longer feel the texture of the sugar on your tongue. If you can still feel the grains of sugar, continue mixing for another 1-2 minutes.
