CAMOUFLAGE sweetness!!

These took a while to prepare, but I think they turned out pretty cool! Jake was SO excited and told me I was the coolest Mommy ever for making

camo cupcakes :) Wanna make them too?

I used Pillsbury Classic Yellow cake mix

Prepare batter and seperate into three bowls

First bowl-classic green food coloring

Second bowl-7 drops red, 4 yellow and 2 blue to create brown

Third bowl-mix to brown and add green until you create the dark green color

Icing: Classic White and add green until color desired, I used a ziploc for icing, cut off tip and created swirly look!



To create the camouflage look, take 1 tbs batter of each color and add to paper liner. I alternated dark green, then light green and then brown. And I would change them up as I went along, making brown on bottom, dark green then light and so on. The colors seem to stay the way you drop them, so when you bite into them...awesome, right?! SO FUN TO MAKE!!
