Army Party Camo Cupcakes

Last year I shared these Red, White and Blue Cupcakes that were a hit with my kids.

I used the same technique for Ethan’s cupcakes for his Army party.

He thought I was pretty much the coolest mom ever.

1. Make your chocolate cake mix and your white cake mix in separate bowls according to the package directions

2. Combine 1/3 of the chocolate mix and 1/3 of the white mix, then add several drops of green food coloring and mix well ’til you get the army green color you are looking for.

3. Spoon 1 heaping spoonful of each mixture into your cupcake liners.

4. Bake according to package directions


Here are some with frosting and those plastic army men:

  1. what a great idea! I have a friend who is throwing a welcome home party for her brother who is in the military… these would be perfect!

  2. Wow, what a great idea! I’m destined to have boys when we have kids so I’ll definitely have to pin this so I remember!

  3. These are awesome!!!! Perfect for a boy’s party! Love this idea, I’ll have to remember it! I always seem to have a much harder time coming up with “cute” ideas for boy’s parties!

  4. Awesome idea! And totally doable for a not-so-patient baker like me. ; )

  5. These are a great idea! I wanted to let you know they are one of my featured posts on my blog today, come check it out!!

    Thanks for sharing!!


  6. I’m going to make these for my son’s birthday. I was just wondering how many cupcakes you got from this recipe. They look so cute!!

  7. So this idea totally saved me!! So simple!! I am having a military themed baby shower and the girl who was making the cupcakes couldn’t do it for me! This is amazing! Can’t wait to try it!!
