Camouflage Cake

 My son's girlfriends birthday was a few days ago.  Like with all the kids, I just had to make her a birthday cake!  I love making cakes for people.

She loves camo so when I was looking for ideas I came across this cake mix at the store.  It costs $2.98 per box.  I was thinking the cake looked cool but surely I could do that for cheaper!

I had a box of white cake mix at home that I paid probably around $.50 for with coupons a couple weeks ago.  I made up the mix and then divided it into 4 bowls.  Using the wilton food coloring I had on hand, I colored the batter camo colors.

I used 2 8" round cake pans.  I took spoonfuls of each of the colors of batter and dropped them  sporadically in the pan.  

I baked the cakes according to the directions on the box.  

They turned out awesome!  I used the same colors to dye white frosting for decorating the cake.  

Here was the end product.  
And of course here is a picture of the inside of the cake!  


  1. Wow Sara! Great job! The cake looks yummy! I love that you used what you already had! Goes to show we don't always have to 'run to the store' on every whim! Thanks for sharing! Blessings from Bama!

  2. I've seen that cake at the store before as well and thought the same thing; that I could make it for a lot cheaper. I like the camo colors you made a lot more than the one that came in the box. Great job!
