Every year I try to make my mans birthday a bit special by making him a super awesome cake. The first year it was a deer and every year I manage to get creative enough to make something new. Last year I made him a cake in the shape of our cat. This year I decided to do something a bit different. I saw a pin on Pinterest for camouflage cupcakes. So that’s what I decided to do this year. And they turned out AWESOME!
I started out with a simple white cake recipe (thanks Martha!). I then divided the batter into 3 different bowls. I added a different color to each bowl (in this case – brown, leaf green and juniper green). Then each cupcake cup got a couple of spoonfuls of each color.
Then I baked those puppies.
They were pretty good just like this but I decided to go-ahead and try to make the frosting camo as well. And I will say – turned out pretty good I do believe.
I again made a simple butter cream icing and divided into 3 bowls – adding the same 3 colors. Then I put a blob of each into the piping bag to create a blended icing look.
How cool are these?!?!?! And they tasted great too!
I think these would be super fun in any color combination – pinks or blues for kids’ birthday parties, bright colors for summer, red and white for Christmas!
