It's never too early to start celebrating St Patrick's Day—especially when the revelry comes in the form of cupcakes. SusieCakes and Sprinkles, the OC's most famous cupcakeries, are marking March 17th with themed varieties.
SusieCakes, which has a range of specials and offers during the whole of March, will be making its whoopee pies with green vanilla buttercream, and decorating its red velvet, vanilla, chocolate and chocolate mint cakes with green jimmies and shamrocks, while Sprinkles is baking Irish Chocolate cupcakes, featuring Belgian dark chocolate cake with a Baileys Irish cream cheese frosting.
And if you really want to plan ahead, you can check out Sprinkles' entire 2009 calendar here. We're already salivating at the thought of early April's Brown Sugar Praline cupcakes.
We don't always approve of tenuous holiday-related food events, but in this case you won't hear us complaining about creeping commercialization.
