Go Green in 2017, Cambridge Style

Shamrock Cupcakes:

What you'll need:
• Muffin tin
• Shamrock-designed cupcake wrappers
• 1 (18 ounce) package of white cake mix
• 1 1/4 cups of water
• 1/3 cup of vegetable oil
• 3 egg whites
• Green food coloring

Steps:
1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. In the meantime, line your muffin tin with the shamrock cupcake wrappers.

2. Mix the cake mix, water, vegetable oil, and egg whites in a bowl and beat the mixture on a low speed until the mix is smooth. Fill the cupcake wrappers 1/3 of the way full with the batter and set aside.

3. Drop green food coloring into the batter remaining in the bowl to make it green. Pour 1/3 of the green batter into a resealable plastic bag.

4. Mix more green food coloring into the bowl of green batter until it is a darker green and pour that batter into a resealable plastic bag. Cut a corner off of that bag and stick the open tip into each cup of white batter and squeeze 2 tablespoons of the green batter.

5. Cut a corner off of the bag with the lighter green batter. Stick the open tip into the center of the dark green batter and squeeze 1 tablespoon of light green batter into each of the cups.

6. Bake the cupcakes in the oven for 15-20 minutes. Let cool before frosting.
