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:

    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!

    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!

    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!!
