I’m not a baker.
But I love sweets so every once in awhile, I dust off the old baking equipment and get the oven nice and hot.
Yesterday was one of those days. Mostly because good old V-Day is right around the corner and my lovely daughters deserve something pink and sweet.
I wanted to try my hand at an ombre cake, but that’s way out of my league. So, I thought ombre cupcakes would be easier.
It’s seriously an art. That I haven’t mastered.
If anyone wants to know the deets, all you need is a cake mix (I used classic white) and red food coloring.
Mix the cake as directed and pour 1-2 tablespoons of your first color in the bottom on the cupcake line. Next add 1-2 tablespoons your second color. And finally add your third color in the same manner.
I use marshmallow fluff as frosting because everything tastes better with a marshmallow on it. Trust me on this.
Sprinkle on some lovely colored sprinkles and your V-Day just got a little better.
