Camo Cupcakes

During the week of Thanksgiving, I had fun helping Carol make "camo cupcakes" for Samuel's outdoor laser tag birthday party. It's always fun to make a mess in someone else's kitchen, so we made this at Ann's house.

We used some brown and green food coloring to make several ugly shades of cake batter and randomly placed them in muffin cups.

Then we made a rather unpleasant but authentic shade of green buttercream frosting.

They looked pretty disgusting - just perfect for a 10-year old boy's birthday party. But they tasted good, and they also blended in perfectly with dirt and leaves just like camo should.

Wow, a very cool idea. I'm telling my sister about this one, her son and his wife love anything camo. :)

Very cute! And yes, they look gross--perfect for almost any boy!
