Hallmark has recently started producing some special ornaments specifically for St. Patrick's Day, much to my delight. The photo above is one of the "Season's Treatings" ornament series, and it features a shamrock cake surrounded by cupcakes, a lollipop and gold coins. This year, I felt inspired to try to duplicate it, somewhat at any rate.
Here it is! I used my Wilton shamrock cake mold to make the shamrock shape for the cake, then I used some store-bought cupcakes and butterscotch candies for the gold coins. To make the lollipop, I used a white Lifesavers candy, then cut some green strips out of sour apple candies and wound them around the Lifesaver. It was a fun way to spend an hour or so, and not bad for my first attempt.
