The other “green” cupcake this month, The Grasshopper!

The Grasshopper: Chocolate cake with minty buttercream (and a little bit of edible gold glitter and luster dust for additional leprechaun-friendly flare!)

These were the first draft. Completely dissatisfied with the presentation, I labeled the box for these, “Swamp Things.” After a while, I became oddly amused by the idea and decided to develop them as their own flavor. More on these, later!
