Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, make it easy with this gift guide for your guy.
While baking, I’m usually as girlie chic as it goes. But when it came to baking something for my best friend’s husband’s birthday party, I had to think outside “jewelry” box. I found this fun camo cupcake recipe from Crafty Mama, and decided would be perfect!
Separate one white cake mix into four different bowls, and color accordingly. I use gel food coloring for all my baking needs. It works much better than the liquid form for cakes, cookies, and icings.
Fill pastry bags, or ziplock bags (which I used because it was much less messy, while using multiple colors) with each of the colored cake mixes.
Pipe a dollop of each color into two cupcake pans evenly. Bake according to recipe instructions.
Instead of making one large cake, I liked the idea of simply making a “24” shape out of the decorative cupcakes.
Instead of going full-out camo, I opted for a Creamy Chocolate Icing to frost the cupcakes.
