Simple Natural Tie-Dye Fruity Easter Cupcake Recipe

Check out this natural tie-dye fruity Easter cupcake recipe! I love Easter not only for what it symbolizes but because it happens right at the beginning of spring time here in Vermont. We get excited to start seeing real colors again after a winter full of white, brown and gray. I love the reds, greens, yellows and pinks from the flowers as they start to bloom.

Fruity Easter Cupcake Recipe

With all the attention to the dangers of artificial food dyes, I prefer to stay way from foods that have them. That doesn’t mean that you can’t enjoy a tie-dye fruity Easter cupcake. It just means you need to find natural alternatives.

There are a number of different natural gelatin mixes out there that use color and flavor from food rather than from artificial colors. You can find Simple Mixes on Amazon. All the ingredients are whole food compliant and made with natural colors, flavors, and sweeteners. They are even gluten-free and made in the USA.

You can buy the cake mix and frosting prepared if you like. Or if you have extra time on your hands, you can try my organic cupcake recipe. Then frost them with my naturally pink frosting. It’s entirely up to you and your preferences. If gluten is an issue, look for a gluten free cupcake mix and frosting.

You can top these with organic jelly beans, a fresh strawberry, or a beautiful Easter cupcake topper like the one I listed above. Check out the floral cupcake topper tutorial I did a while ago if you’d like to make your own.

Once the cupcakes are ready, get the kids together, put on some Easter music and enjoy the treat.
