Ingredients: For the cupcakes
Ingredients: For the frosting
- Preheat the oven to 375˚F.
- Whisk together the dry ingredients. Add the milk, butter, and vanilla, beating on medium for 2 minutes. Add the egg whites, and beat 2 more minutes.
- Divide the batter evenly into three bowls. Add blue food coloring to one bowl, red to another, and leave one bowl without food coloring. Fill cupcake liners ⅔ of the way full, alternating colors to make the camouflage pattern.
- Bake for 17-19 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean. Remove from baking pan, and let cool on a cooling rack.
- Combine all of the ingredients except for the food coloring, mixing well.
- Divide the frosting evenly into three bowls. Add blue food coloring to one bowl, red to another, and leave one bowl without food coloring.
- Frost each cupcake with all three colors, using a knife or a piping bag to achieve a marbled look.
