My mom helped me with food prep. She made the savory I made the sweet. I made my yummy and boozy Irish cupcakes which consist of a Guinness Stout chocolate cupcake, filled with a Jameson Irish Whisky custard filling, topped with a Baileys Irish Cream buttercream icing. Hobbit seed cakes, vegan Lembas bread, baked brie with apricot preserves, blackberry tarts, and mini berry cakes with whipped cream icing.

|The baked brie and the berry cakes.|
|The extra seed cakes and berry cakes that wouldn't fit on the main table.|
|Irish Cabbage Rolls my mom made.|
|Fresh veggies and fruit, with several varieties of cheese.|
|The berry cakes.|
|Hobbit seed cakes.|
|The making of the cupcakes. They are baked with beer and then brushed with it.|
|The "family size" whiskey bottle.|
All in all it was another successful St. Patrick's Day party at The Griffin House. Éirinn go Brách!
