Happy St. Patty's Day 2011!

These are the same cupcakes as the Mardi Gras, I decided to make the same flavor for both since they are both fitting! Therefore, these are Bailey Irish Cream Cupcakes with Bailey Chocolate Ganache Filling and with Irish Cream buttercream. The buttercream came out a little too soft because the butter I was using was super soft. Note to self, only use sticks of butter rather than country crock's...Lesson learned!! Anyways, I hope everyone had a nice lucky day today and wore lots of green!!

What's your good luck charm? Mine would definitely have to be my wedding ring. My husband, Khoa, is the best thing that's ever happened to me and is it by luck or fate? I do not know, but either way, I am lucky to have in at my partner in crime, and he makes me feel like the luckiest gal ever! I want to give him a special shout out for always making last minute grocery store runs to get me eggs, or whatever else I was missing to complete my projects! Thanks Jennifer also for getting more sugar =P. You guys are always a great big help to me!! Thanks! Now, enjoy these fun facts and some cheeky humor below!

Fun Lucky Facts:
Ever heard of a Blarney? Well, the Blarney is a block of blue stone built into the battlements of Blarney Castle, Blarney, about five miles from Cork, Ireland. According to legend, kissing the stone endows the kisser with the gift of gab (since the word blarney means clever or flattering talk). The stone was set into a tower of the castle in 1446. Today, the castle is a popular tourist site in Ireland, attracting visitors from all over the world to kiss the stone and tour the castle and its gardens. According to the Guinness Book of World Records, the highest number of leaves found on a clover is 14! A fun estimate suggests that for every one lucky four-leaf clover, there are about 10,000 regular three-leaf clovers! There are 19 US Presidents who proudly claim Irish heritage, one being our first President, George Washington.

Lucky Jokes:
What do you call a fake stone in Ireland? A sham rock! When is an Irish Potato not an Irish Potato? A French Fry! What does it mean when you find a horseshoe? Some poor horse is going barefoot! Have you ever heard of the 6-leaf clover? Me neither! Why can't you borrow money from a leprechaun? Because they're always a little short.

Have a sweet lucky day today everyone and I hope you all find your pot of gold at the end of the rainbow!
