Army Themed Cake with green army men. No special ingredients or special cake pan needed!
1 Box Cake mix (any kind)
2 Cans white frosting (not whipped)
Green Plastic Army men
Food Coloring/Dye in dark green
Other ingredients needed to make box cake mix (depending on box of cake) usually water, egg, oil
Prepare cake mix as directed on box.
Grease and flour a 9x12 glass casserole pan or round cake or casserole along with a cupcake pan.
Pour cake into large pan about 2/3 full and pour remaining cake batter into cupcakes (make sure you have enough for at least 2 cupcakes.)
Bake according to directions then let cool.
Once cool, flip cake out of pan onto cake plate or platter. Remove cupcakes from pan. Make sure everything is completely cool.
In a bowl mix frosting with food coloring until you get the army-green color you want. If you would like to have 2 contrasting colors to make a camo looking cake, then you can use the other can of frosting to mix a lighter or darker green.
Take the cupcakes and remove the "tops" and place them on the cake to create hills. Use a little frosting to "glue" them into place.
Frost the cake. No need to get it smooth...just frost the entire cake and cupcake hills until it is all covered. If you have another color green, you can then go back over it in areas to look like camo.
Add green army men and vehicles on to cake to create an army scene.
