Earth Day Inspired Cupcakes

Hey Re-play readers, it’s Jamie from Five Whimsy Lane. My daughter’s friends’ birthday is this month, so I teamed up with her mom to put together an Earth Day Birthday party full of fun ideas using recycled products. I thought it would be fun to share some ideas with you that I’ll be incorporating into the party. One of which are these Earth cupcakes. They were super easy and really fun to make. Here is what you’ll need:

Earth Day Inspired Cupcakes


  • Muffin pan
  • Cupcake liners
  • Blue & Green food coloring
  • 2 bowls
  • 2 spoons
  • Cupcake batter


  1. Make cupcake batter according to recipe.
  2. Split batter into two bowls.
  3. Add desired amount of food coloring to each bowl & mix thoroughly. (I added about 5 drops each.)
  4. Fill cupcake liners halfway using a spoonful of each color batter.
  5. Bake according to recipe.
  6. Remove and cool completely before icing.



About Jamie

Hi! My name is Jamie with Five Whimsy Lane and I like to make things pretty. Parties especially. Glitter enthusiast...lover of all things chocolate & a partynista. Is that a word? Wifey to one fabulous husband and mother to 3 amazing children, Caleb, Leilani & Olivia who are my main inspiration. What more could a girl ask for? When I'm not scouring Pinterest for hours (I'm working honey, I promise) you can find me digging in my fairy garden, dancing with the kids or cleaning my Dyson. Who wants a dirty vacuum? My love for parties began over 10 years ago when I was planning my sons 1st birthday. I realized I had a huge passion for details (some might call it an obsession). After many years and wonderful birthday memories later Sweet Jelly Parties was born. Children's events and baby showers are our specialty but I'm a lover of all reasons to celebrate. Anniversaries, holidays, graduations, it's a Friday so let's throw a party.....You name it, I'll glitter it. Every once in a while though I like to trade in my juice box for a glass of wine which is why I'm also a Certified Wedding Planner.
