Chocolate Camo Cupcakes

These are some cute cupcakes I had for an order several months back. They requested chocolate cupcakes with some type of camouflage frosting. I googled several different options and just didn't find what I was looking for. I have swirled colors of frosting together before but never more than 2. I really wanted these to have a true camouflage look so I went for 4 colors! Rebel....I know :) I was really happy with the way they turned out. The chocolate cupcakes recipe comes from Baking Bites and they were delicious. Moist and chocolately with mini chocolate chips. Will definitely be making these again!

Moist Chocolate Cupcakes from Baking Bites

3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 large eggs
3/4 cup buttermilk
1/3 cup vegetable oil or melted butter
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2/3 cup mini chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place liners in 2 12 cup muffin tins. In a large bowl, whisk together cocoa, flour, sugar, baking soda, baking powder and salt until thoroughly mixed.

In a medium bowl, whisk together eggs, water, buttermilk, vegetable oil and vanilla.

Whisk into flour mixture until all ingredients are mixed and no streaks of flour remain.

Add in mini chocolate chips, if using.

Fill muffin cups about 2/3 full. Bake for 15 minutes or until toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

Remove cupcakes from the pan and allow to cool completely before frosting. They had the perfect cupcake dome after coming out of the over!

For the frosting colors I used Americolor Gel Paste, Leaf Green, Avocado, Chocolate Brown and Copper. Just scooped several spoonsfuls of each color in a pastry bag and that was it.

Pretty little camo cupcakes....alright maybe pretty shouldn't be used for camo! Haha manly cupcakes :)

Now I wish I had found these camouflage cupcake liners before. The birthday boy liked them so I guess that's all that matters. Print This
