Tye Dye Cupcakes are fun to make, cool to look at and fantastic to eat! They’re perfect to serve for Easter, Springtime, Mother’s Day or Just Because. They might look difficult to make but when you use a boxed cake mix and ready-made frosting, they come together quickly. This Easter week-end my grandson will be staying with us, so we did all the usual Easter stuff. Take a look…

Easter Break

Every year my grandson stays with us over Easter break and we dutifully color eggs. I’m not sure why, except the fact he “likes the way they look when they’re brightly colored,” as he puts it. He doesn’t like hard-boiled eggs and frankly neither do I but thankfully papa does. Papa can eat all the hard-boiled eggs he wants, under one condition, he eats them when he’s at work.

Bring on the Cupcakes!

After we colored eggs, I decided to make deviled eggs out of the four eggs that ended up cracked, due to a few slips and mishaps. E doesn’t like deviled eggs either and well, neither do I so papa happily ate those too. Next we made cupcakes. Tye Dye Cupcakes! E and Grandma both have a huge sweet tooth, so we were only too happy to indulge in a cupcake or two after all that egg dyeing business.
