Robin’s Egg Cupcakes & Cake

Robin's Egg Cupcakes - The First Year Blog #Cupcakes #Easter

Easter is on its way!

I found this on Pinterest from The Cake Blog
speckled cake

And I was inspired, so I tried my hand at speckling, and it’s super easy!

Cupcake mix
Buttercream or royal frosting
Food coloring of your choice
1.5 parts Vanilla and 1 part Cocoa powder, mixed for speckling
Brush to flick mixture
Something to speckle in, I placed my cupcakes in a box without the lid on and then speckled them, it helped to keep the mess contained

I had leftover batter so I also made a cake.

Since it wasn’t gluten free, we gave it away to some friends!

Happy Spring!
