Shamrock Money Cakes

by Kathleen Ballos

Have you ever had a money cake? My grandma used to make them for us when we were kids – she’d wrap coins in wax paper and hide them in the icing layer of our birthday cakes. When you ate your slice, you would always hope for lots of coins! This Saint Patrick’s Day, I thought it would be fun to use chocolate coins instead and hide them under shamrock toppers on these miniature cakes. So simple, but what a fun surprise!

St. Patrick’s Day Rainbow Necklace

by Ashley Page Norton

Somehow I never have anything green to wear on St. Patrick’s Day. This long seed bead necklace is great to have on hand if you’re like me and want to avoid getting pinched! Choose a variety of colors and shapes of beads, just make sure every color of the rainbow is represented (especially green) and even a little gold for the rainbow’s end.
