How to Make It: Frost cupcake. In bowl or cup, use food coloring to tint coconut green. Arrange jellybeans in triangle shape to form carrot. Sprinkle coconut at the wide top for leaves.

Sometimes, simplest is best. Especially when there’s a last-minute call for cupcakes for the school St. Patrick’s Day party, or for the after-work party where everyone’s bound to be a little tipsy anyway. These green jellybean cupcakes add sparkle without taking much time. The St. Pat’s liners are a nice touch, and available from Wilton.

What You Need: 1 cupcake; green icing (I used Pillsbury’s holiday frosting); green sugar or sprinkles; green jellybeans (or go smaller with Jelly Bellys).

How to Make It: Frost cupcake. Sprinkle with or dip in green sugar. Add jelly beans.
