Festive cupcakes

These children's party favourites are now appreciated for all occasions. So why not make them for St Patrick's Day. Make them green by adding green food colouring to the icing and mix on some green sprinkles. See our example above.

Frogs in the lily pond

Chocolate frogs and green jelly are the perfect combination when celebrating the luck of the Irish.

Chocolate mousse cupcakes with mint

These yummy chocolate cakes have a light and airy mousse for the icing. Fold through some crushed mint chocolate bar for added crunch. For a fancy St Patrick's Day twist, paint melted chocolate on the underside of four-leaf clovers and allow to set. Simply peel off the leaf to reveal a perfect chocolate leaf garnish.

Irish wheaten meal soda bread

An old-fashioned Irish recipe passed down through generations. You have to try it at least once on St Patrick's Day.

Honeydew melon granite

Granita is a simple and refreshing dessert. The Midori adds colour and extra melon flavour but is easily omitted for children.

Mint Macarons

Make the macarons using the Italian method and add green food colouring. They will be a hit with the family.

Mean, green bruschetta

A fun and sneaky way to get your kids enjoying their green food. Make this avocado and garlic bruschetta concoction with their help and you might be surprised how much they like it.

Green Couscous

A delicious combination of green herbs and spices give this couscous a green lease on life.

Green tea mousse

Great as a dessert that's not too sweet or even as an accompaniment to savoury dishes.
