Easy Camo Cupcakes

We made some Red, White and Blue Cupcakes for 4th of July one year that my kids LOVED. They are easy to put together and result in a fun, swirly, colorful cupcake. I used the same technique to make Camo Cupcakes for Ethan’s Army party. (He thought I was pretty much the coolest mom ever!) Do you want to win your own “Mom of the Year” Award? You’ve come to the right place!

Items Used To Make Army Cupcakes

Decorating Your Army Camo Cupcakes

You can leave these cupcakes as-is, or decorate them with some frosting and toppings. (Those small, green, plastic army men toys, look darling! … I mean, “tough!”)  You can use my favorite cream cheese frosting and add green food coloring to it or you can just buy some frosting from the store.
