I came across this recipe several years ago on TrendHunter. These cupcakes are very easy to make, and they are the perfect thank you for the Veteran in your house or community. Mix up a couple of batches today -- Veterans Day. Of course, you can always use your make your own from-scratch cupcakes and frosting. You get the idea!



1 box (15.25 oz) Betty Crocker™ Super Moist™ Vanilla Cake Mix (and ingredients called for on the package) 
1 box (15.25 oz) Betty Crocker™ Delights Super Moist™ Dark Chocolate Cake Mix (and ingredients called for on the package) 
2 tubs (16 oz) Betty Crocker™ Rich & Creamy Vanilla Frosting 
1 tub (16 oz) Betty Crocker™ Rich & Creamy Chocolate Frosting 
Green food coloring 


Preheat oven to 350°F. Line cupcake tins with paper liners. Prepare cake mix batter according to package directions in two separate bowls. 

You'll need four medium sized bowls. 
In first bowl: Pour 2 cups of white cake batter. 
In second bowl: Pour one cup white cake batter and one cup chocolate cake batter and mix together. 
In third bowl: Pour 2 cups white cake batter, green food coloring and 2-3 tablespoons of chocolate frosting. Mix together and adjust for the desired camo green that you want. 
In fourth bowl: Pour 2 cups of chocolate batter. 

Spoon tablespoon of each color into each cupcake tin. Repeat the colors until liners are 2/3 of the way full. 

Bake for 15-18 minutes or until cupcakes are set and spring back to the touch. Cool cupcakes. 

For Frosting 

Add one tablespoon of white frosting to chocolate frosting container and mix well. For green camouflage colored frosting add one tablespoon of chocolate frosting to a container of white frosting along with some green food coloring until desired color is reached. 

Spoon green camouflage colored frosting into gallon Ziploc bag. Spoon chocolate frosting into separate gallon Ziploc bag. Spoon remaining container of vanilla frosting into gallon Ziploc bag. Cut off corner of all of the bags and place side by side inside large pastry bag fitted with a star tip. Pipe frosting onto cooled cupcakes.
