How to make Camouflage Cupcakes

  1. After mixing the white cake mix with ingredients to make it taste more like homemade, then divide  batter into 3 equals amounts – about 1 cup each into separate bowls.
  2. Color 1 part with 3-4 drops green coloring then add 1/4 cup chocolate cake batter, mix well. By adding the chocolate cake batter, you will get the deep green color.
  3. Add 1/4 cup chocolate cake batter to another bowl of white batter, mix well
  4. Leave the third bowl with white cake batter and the remaining chocolate cake batter

Now it’s time to fill the cupcake liners and create the camouflage look.

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and fill muffin pan with cupcake liners
  2. Divide batter into 4 separate bags, you can use decorator bags like I did or any resealable bag.
  3. Add the batter, all colors at the same time into cupcake liners. It’s easiest if you have another set of hands to help you.
  4. Use a knife or toothpick to gently swirl the batter.
  5. Bake at 350 degrees for about 15 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean
