Already receiving orders for St. Patty's Day--have plenty of shamrock cutters and a leprechaun. Anyone have ideas for something out of the ordinary?

A couple of years back I did a 3D pot of gold cake for a friend. I covered the pot of gold in black fondant and made gold coins out of oyster crackers that i painted w/ gold highlighter. It thought it turned out well to be my first 3D cake I have ever done!

I was thinking of making one with a rainbow landing in a pot of gold and also a mug of beer. I tried to find one online but was unable (and didn't want to pay $12.95 + shipping for the copper ones cuz I'm cheap like that! ) icon_wink.gif

I want that darn beer mug too, but with shipping it's almost $20 bucks. I going to try and make one of my own. I like the flag idea, I have a cutter. Also, I have a snowman cutter that I can probably turn into a lerprechaun face. I love the claddagh too, but that cutter is also too expensive. Geez I long for the days when my DH wasn't laid-off.

I have a plastic St. Patrick's mug cookie cutter I got at Hallmark years ago. I just checked eBay and found two listings (as part of a set of cutters) by searching for Hallmark St. Patrick's cookie cutters. They have a foamy head on them and are very cute when decorated.

Whoa Honeydukes! You are on top of it!! Thanks for sharing! I've been wanting to do something a little different as well.

I have been cutting the beer mug myself from a template... ugh.

It's the most popular design though, next to the shamrock.

Thanks for the info!

I broke down and ordered the beer mug cutter from Copper Gifts. Shipping was only $6.00 per order. So I went ahead and ordered a snowman head to serve a dual purpose as a leprechaun face also. Im addicted to cookie cutters. Especially the nice copper ones.
