I went with Duff’s camouflage pre–mix. It was safe for my daughter since it didn’t contain dairy and safe soy ingredients for her ( soy oil and lecithin). I hadn’t seen this mix before and thought the camouflage would be a neat touch, plus I always loved watching Charm City Cakes. I then found some frosting that was already dyed green and some smaller tubes of other frosting colors. You will need blue, orange, dark green and dark purple for the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles masks.  You will need some sort of decorating pieces for the eyes. Add some cupcake liners in green or brown and you will be set.

Gathering Everything

I started by creating the mix in the different camouflage colors. I wish I thought to take a picture of the camo cupcakes after they were all baked because they turned out super cute. If you didn’t go with camo, you can utilize the mix as is or  you can dye the mix a color of your choice. I thought a dark green would work great for the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, too.  The pack includes green and brown food dye packs to make dark green, dark brown, tan and lighter green. Combine the different colors of mix, if you utilized camouflage, too. I had my kids help put the different colors in with me, so it was more efficient and to make it easier to create the camouflage colors, in the cupcake liners.

Creating the Camouflage

After your cupcakes are done cooking and cooled, frost with the green frosting. Make sure and do the frosting thinner, to make it easier for the kids to decorate the masks.Get all the colors for the masks together, add tips, if you have them or are utilizing a decorating bag. Finally, give them to the kids and let the kids go to town, utilizing all the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles mask colors. Plop on the dots for eyes and Enjoy!
