When you’re over Bunny Butt Cakes and want something a little different, Robin’s Egg Cupcakes are a great alternative to bunny cakes. It’s simple and doesn’t require any hard to find ingredients. You probably already have blue food coloring from dying eggs anyway right?
Here are other colored icing combos to try with food color dye:
purple icing: 12 red drops and 8 blue drops
green icing: 9 green drops and 2 yellow drops
orange icing: 12 yellow drops and 4 red drops
pink icing: 10 (or more) red drops
Don’t have time for that? Buy pink strawberry icing or lemon icing to get pastel yellow icing.
A Robin’s egg Story I’ll never forget…
Speaking of Robin’s eggs, I found a real one in the grass a couple of years ago. I went inside to grab my phone to take a picture of it. When I came outside, it was gone… just like that! I asked my little boys if they saw the Robin’s egg and my younger one told me “Yes, it didn’t taste good so, I spit it out!” What!?!? I laughed after I caught my breath. Insert..eye roll.
So, let’s get to making these cute Easter cupcakes that are very edible!
