Blue Ombre Cupcakes

This is what can happen when one tube of Rainbow Dust ProGel meets one pot of Renshaw Personalise Me Icing! By adding in differing amounts of ProGel, you can create lots of beautiful different shades of the same colour- perfect for any party!

Makes 9 cupcakes

Top Tips


If you are unsure of how deep you want to make the blue shades, start with a small amount of ProGel, and you can always add more to build up the shades, bearing in mind the colours will deepen slightly over time.


Why not try this recipe using a different ProGel colour- there are over 30 to choose from! This recipe works best with darker ProGel colours because you can get a better spectrum of shades.
