  • Cupcakes: Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C). Line mini muffin pans with paper liners.
  • Beat shortening and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add vanilla.
  • Combine dry ingredients in a separate bowl. Add half of the dry mixture to the egg mixture and stir. Add milk and then stir in remaining dry mixture until combined. Divide batter in half.
  • Stir 2-3 drops of green food colouring into one half of the batter until mixture turns green.
  • Spoon approximately 2 tsp (10mL) of each batter into each paper liner.
  • Bake in preheated oven for 12-15 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in center of cupcake comes out clean. Cool on wire rack.
  • Icing: Beat shortening, 3 cups (750mL) icing sugar, milk and vanilla for 2-3 minutes until mixture thickens. Add remaining icing sugar 1 cup (250mL) at a time, beating well after each addition. If icing is too thick simply add more milk, 1 tbsp (15mL) at a time until you have the desired thickness.
  • Divide icing in half. Stir 2-3 drops green food colouring into half the icing mixture until icing turns green.
  • To ice cupcakes place a piece of plastic wrap on a clean flat surface. Place equal amounts of green icing and white icing side by side. Using the plastic wrap, wrap up the icing into a cone, leaving a small hole at the end of the plastic wrap so you can squeeze out the icing. Place in icing bag and decorate.
