Make Camo Cupcakes!

Dec

Aren’t those cupcakes adorable? I made these for a child’s birthday party–he wanted camo cupcakes. But they would work for an adult event as well. Let me show you how I made them!


Start with a white cake batter. You can use a cake mix (if you must) or a homemade white cake. (I have a homemade white cake recipe here.) Prepare the cake batter then divide evenly into three bowls.

Using food coloring, dye the batter in green, brown, and white (natural). Line a cupcake pan with paper cups and, using a spoon, put dollops of batter from each bowl into each cupcake.

Continue until each cup is about two-thirds filled.

Bake–and voila! Camo cupcakes!

Now, on to the frosting!

Again, using food coloring, dye three bowls of buttercream frosting in green, brown, and white (natural) and fill pastry bags with each color. I used a three-color coupler with a star tip to swirl on the frosting atop each cupcake. (I got the decorating coupler at Amazon here.)

I found some cute deer head cupcake toppers on Etsy. (Here’s the link to the cupcake toppers.)

I placed a toy buck in the center of the cupcake display.

It took a bit of time to put this whole camo cupcake thing together, but it wasn’t difficult, just time-consuming. But worth it! And it was fun.

Happy birthday, Hunter! (That is Rodney’s little grandson.)

    These are awesome Suzanne! I’ll bet he loved it. The hunting crowd on Facebook will go a little batty over these!

    Those are amazing! What a wonderful memory for that little guy, things like that really stick in kids brains.

    Living in the heart of PA deer hunting country, I am surprised I have only ever seen one other hunting related cake, which was a groom’s cake topped with hunter and a gutted deer. The icing was just chocolate with red blood and guts.

    I am going to use your cake batter method this weekend.

    Adorable, Suzanne! Where did you find the pastry coupler that would accomodate three bags?

    I added the link in the post now, but to save you the trouble from looking back through the post, here it is again. I got it on Amazon. It’s a Wilton color swirl three-color coupler.

The Slanted Little House

"It was a cold wintry day when I brought my children to live in rural West Virginia. The farmhouse was one hundred years old, there was already snow on the ground, and the heat was sparse-—as was the insulation. The floors weren’t even, either. My then-twelve-year-old son walked in the door and said, “You’ve brought us to this slanted little house to die." Keep reading our story....
