Happy St. Pat’s to you, too!
I have two small footprint stamps and stamp green footprints all over my preschool classroom each year the night before. The children spend the morning looking for the leprechaun who left them and eventually we find his pot of gold. Next year there might have to be a cake involved….

As much as I hate cooking and baking – and try to avoid it at all costs – I must make this. It is way too cute not to! Thanks so much!!

Cute, funny and smart!
I almost want to be a Leprechaun so I can fall into such a trap.

I think your Leprechaun cake is so creative and love that you give such detailed descriptions. I had to share with my readers!

This cake is delightful! After reading your post I did a variation on it for my friend’s birthday – a rainbow surprise layer cake: http://www.facebook.com/album.php?aid=2131409&id=9801910&l=0015c2b17f
