|Booze in cupcake form: delicious!|
We know you're planning to get your Irish on later tonight
, but if you want to get your St. Paddy's party started early, a stop by Lovely Confections Bakery
(1489 Steele St.) will do you good. The cupcake shop is offering two holiday specialty flavors: Irish Car Bomb (Guinness cupcake with a milk chocolate Bailey's frosting) and Nutty Irishman (hazelnut cupcake topped with vanilla buttercream and a drizzle of Irish whiskey ganache).
To sweeten the deal, you could get one or both of these bad boys for free today.
It's the luck of the Irish: Find a shamrock hidden on the bottom of your
cupcake and it's yours for free. Not one for gambling? Show up wearing a
little celebratory green and you'll automatically get a free mini
cupcake with your fullsized purchase. The big cupcakes are $3 each, which is a steal when you're getting two.
And in case you're actively avoiding that stretch of Colfax near the Irish Snug
today, no worries: Lovely Confections will be offering the flavors through the weekend, so you'll have extra time to kick back with this sweet treat.
