I decided to go with a pastel color for the buttercream instead of the standard blue buttercream.

Robin’s Egg Cake Tips

For this cake, it is strongly recommended that you chill it to get a smooth and firm surface for the brown speckles. If you live in a humid climate and are prone to condensation, you should use edible paint mixed with a bit of vodka over a brown gel color to avoid the brown speckles running down due to condensation.

Robin’s Egg Cake Instructions

  1. Bake your favorite recipe using a stand mixer and pour the cake batter into the 6-inch cake pans. Recipe suggestions at the bottom of the post.
  2. Let the cake cool for 10 minutes then take the cake layers out of the pans.
  3. Cut the top using a serrated knife or a cake lever if there is a significant dome.
  4. Make your favorite buttercream in a large mixing bowl.
  5. Tint the buttercream using a tad bit of violet and mix it with deep pink to get a pastel purple with a touch of pink. You can use blue food coloring if preferred.
  6. Crumb coat the cake with buttercream covering all of the naked spots using an offset spatula.
  7. Put it in the fridge for 10 minutes.
  8. Fill one disposable bag with the buttercream.
  9. Pipe from the bottom to the top.
  10. Use the cake comb to smooth the cake. Fill in the holes with buttercream until you get a smooth coat.
  11. Heat up the comb for the final smooth.
  12. Place the cake in the fridge until cold.
  13. Drop a bit of brown gel food coloring on a plate and dilute it with a tiny drop of water. Mix it with the paintbrush. (If using edible paint, dilute it with a bit of vodka.)
  14. Flick the paintbrush with your finger and work your way around the entire cake. I recommend using a glove for this step. My finger was stained for less than 24 hours.
  15. Apply the Easter sprinkles to the sides of the cake at the bottom. If you have trouble getting them to stick, let the cake warm up a little bit but not too warm.
  16. Mix 3oz of chocolate melts with 1oz of heavy cream in a small bowl and microwave at 30 seconds then 15 seconds to get it melted.
  17. Squeeze a drop of yellow in the bowl and let it sit for 5 minute. You don’t want it to be too hot or too cold.
  18. Use a spoon to apply the drips around the cake.
  19. Place it back in the fridge to let the chocolate firm up a little bit before piping the border.
  20. Use a 1M piping tip and create a ruffle effect in a zig zag motion as seen in the video.
  21. Sprinkle on more Easter sprinkles on the top.
  22. Place Cadbury mini eggs or any other candy eggs on the top of the cake.
  23. Enjoy your gorgeous Robin’s Egg cake for Easter Sunday!
