Growing up my birthday cakes involved things like pink flowers, rabbits, and Raggedy Ann...but when making birthday confections for gun toting, sports loving, tree climbing boys pink just isn't going to cut it. Enter AK's Internet discovery CAMO CUPCAKES!!! Super easy - super fun!
You'll need a box of white cake mix, a box of chocolate cake mix, and some green food coloring (preferably dark green rather than neon)
Follow the box instructions and mix up the two cake mixes in separate bowls. Divide into the following:
1. one bowl with just white
2. one bowl with a little white and a little chocolate
3. one bowl with all chocolate
4. one bowl with some white, a little bit of chocolate, and enough green food coloring to make it a green you like.
Mix each bowl until the colors are combined and then spoon the batter into ziplocks (I found that quart sized bags were perfect).
Bake cupcakes according to the box directions...and...
HOW AWESOME ARE THOSE?!?!
Even Camo on the inside!
The instructions for the camo icing said to do the same thing with chocolate and vanilla icing and green food coloring, putting each color in a separate disposable piping bag and then putting all four bags into one big piping bag. This did not turn out very well...(if you try it and figure out how to make it NOT look like poop...please tell me what you did!)
I ended up just writing on the cupcakes with the different colors...turned out ok!
