      I love the glossy look on the chocolate topping. Feel like I want to lick it :p
      I think you're a master of cupcakes.
      The flower pattern on top of cupcakes really draw attention, so we don't need to look anywhere but to the cake. Nice.

      Oh no, is it almost March.....time flies. I feel like it was just Christmas the other day. You really are the cup cake queen, every little detail is always perfect.

      Thanks you guys!

      I'd never heard of "lucky grass" before but after searching online it looks like it's the same as what I know as shamrocks or 4-leaf clovers. So I guess it is a lucky grass cake after all! The topping is just a design made with mint buttercream, though, in reference to Irish heritage for the upcoming St. Patrick's Day holiday in the US. There isn't any real clover in the cake or frosting.
