Happy Yom Ha’Atzmaut! Thanks to your comments on my St. Patrick’s Day post I decided to set a challenge for myself. To try and recreate the blue icing cupcakes of my youth with natural food dye. You must understand that I do not have an extensive test kitchen and loads of time and energy so I tried one option… extracting blue coloring from blueberry jam.
I must say I think I failed miserably and so I created a tried and true second batch using good o’l fashioned food coloring. The test will be completed tonight when I see which platter is done first. I’ll let you know.
5 hours later: I couldn’t believe the results of my unscientific challenge so I am attaching a new picture to show what happened!
