• To reach desired Tiffany Blue color: I added color gel with a tooth pick until it achieved the color I wanted. It took approximately 3 toothpick scoops.

We just adore the color Tiffany Blue!

Our LOVE of Tiffany Blue runs deep. . . Breakfast at Tiffany’s was a favorite movie of mine (Ruthie) all through my growing up years!  And It still is.  Every now & again I pull it out and re-watch it just to fall in love with Audrey Hepburns spunky role as Holly Golightly all over again!  Breakfast at Tiffany’s was produced during Hollywood’s Golden Age in 1961 and one of Audrey’s most memorable films.

Back in 2011, when Cooking with Ruthie began, this love of Tiffany Blue and the 1960’s vintage feel influenced the design of the blog.  Along with my grandmother’s 1960’s cooking show, What’s Cooking with Louise!  We may need to do some updates from time to time; however these influences will always be here.  We love creating and sharing on CWR with all of you!  Thank you for being apart of our blog-family.

If you’re making our Tiffany Blue Mini Cupcakes and you live above 5,800 feet elevation then these baking tips will be helpful:

Here are some helpful tips for baking with high elevation:

  • 5,800 elevation is considered very high elevation.
  • Adjustment for 5000+ feet:
  • Reduce baking powder: for each teaspoon, decrease 1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon.
  • Reduce sugar: for each cup, decrease 2 tablespoons.
  • Increase liquid: for each cup, add 2 to 4 tablespoons.
  • Increase oven temperature by 25 degrees F.
  • Check if it is done a little early.
  • This takes some trial and error to get it right for you.
