St Patrick's Day Baking Ideas

by Owen Redford

St Patricks Day is coming up soon (Sunday 17th March to be precise), and it’s everybody’s favourite time of year to celebrate the luck of the Irish! The first celebration of the day was held in Boston in 1737 with American Irish immigrants deciding to celebrate a day dedicated to their home country. Although we associate the day with the colour green, the first celebrations used the colour blue but then shifted to green once Ireland became known as the ‘Emerald Isle’. We love St Patricks day so we have put together a list of some amazing St Paddy’s themed baking ideas for you to try at home!

Green and White Bundt Cake

The first St Patricks Day themed bake we have for you is this vibrant green and white bundt cake. It features a circular bundt shape, with bright green and white icing and sprinkles as well as a green inner cake for a nice bright surprise when you cut into it. Plenty of opportunities to get creative with this one!

Why not add some Citrus Sunshine vegan Baking Time Club sprinkles to this bake for an added St Patrick’s Day touch?
