Draw a shamrock shape onto a piece of wax paper. Size the shamrock to make it fit perfectly on the top of a frosted cupcake. Cut the shamrock out. Frost your favorite flavor of cupcakes in white icing. Place the wax paper on top. Spoon green sprinkles onto the top. Remove the wax paper to reveal a green shamrock. Use the shaped cut-out to create an opposite type of negative space design. Place the waxed paper shamrock on frosting, add sprinkles and remove the shape to reveal a holiday design.
