These camo cupcakes were a big hit at my grandson’s 4 year old birthday party. camo cupcakes. kids cooking class

Last week my 2 little grandsons from NC came to stay with me for 4 days.  One of them has an August 1st birthday.  He had his birthday party with friends and NC family before they came to visit. We wanted to have a little party with his WV family while he was here.  He requested a camo birthday party because he loves camo!  It was also birthday week for his Uncle David.  I was having a kids cooking class with them the day before the party, so I decided we would make foods to take to the party.  His 6 year old brother wanted to make camo cupcakes and they turned out so cute.

In this class, the skills we worked on were hand-washing, how to measure ingredients, using a mixer safely , and frosting cupcakes.

We used a yellow cake mix and followed the directions on the box.  I divided some of the batter into small bowls and added food coloring paste to obtain the camo colors.  We also used a can of chocolate frosting for convenience.

I preheated the oven and helped him line the cupcake/muffin pans with bright green paper liners.

This can be a messy job but they will still turn out wonderful.

  1. What a wonderful way to celebrate all those birthdays! I just love the photo of the little one with frosting face! While you say the dog didn’t eat any cupcakes I bet he licked some frosting off of some faces!

  2. I guess any grandchild of Grandma Honey’s just needs to name whatever theme he/she would like and – magically! – it appears! These are great cupcakes, especially since the birthday boy’s brother got to make them for the party!
