Camouflage Cupcakes for an Army Themed Party

For my son’s 14th birthday, we had a small family gathering at home and I threw an Army Themed Party to celebrate. I decided to bake some camouflage cupcakes (always the easiest and quickest cakes to make for a celebration, especially since I was a pretty bad mum and left it to the last minute!)

I did cheat on this one by using cake mix to make the cupcakes, but if you are a reader of The Purple Pumpkin Blog you know I can bake cupcakes just fine!

To make these camo cupcakes I took a box of white cake mix and prepared it as instructed on the pack, and then coloured half of it green. I know the green isn’t quite right, but it’s all I had as I couldn’t find my dark green colour paste. I then took a box of chocolate cake mix and prepared that as instructed.

I put blobs of each into cupcake cases and bake for 20 minutes…

With the cupcakes all made and cooled I then iced them using store bought buttercream in white and chocolate – colouring some of the white icing green. I then smoothed over some of each colour icing, sprinkled on some chocolate sprinkles for dirt and added a cupcake topper (which I designed) and a little green army man. I think, for a last minute jobbie, they came out awesome!

I placed each cupcake into the camo cupcake wrappers I made and they were good to go!
