Step 1: Gather Cake Ingredients

White cake batter

Chocolate cake batter

Green and black food color

Step 2: Mix Colored Batter

Divide the chocolate and white batter into 4 bowls.

Color one bowl of chocolate batter black.

Color one bowl of white batter green

TIP: If your project allows, starting with chocolate batter or frosting makes it easier to make black. You will use less food color.

Step 3: Fill Cupcake Liners

Randomly drop teaspoons and partial teaspoons of the four different colored batter (white, green, brown and black) into your cupcake liner. Give your cupcake tin a few taps on the counter to get out air bubbles and bake.

Step 4: Gather Things Needed to Decorate

White buttercream frosting

Green buttercream frosting

Small Candy eyes. You can find these at some Walmarts and at hobby stores.

Tube of black piping gel

Betty Crocker Fruit by the Foot Flavor Mixers, Cherry, Orange, Raspberry and Grape

Red jelly beans

Step 5: Decorate

Frost your cupcakes with the green buttercream

To make their masks, cut the fruit roll ups into 3" strips. Use the different colors and flavors putting a strip across the cupcake at eye level.

Put a little white buttercream on the back of the candy eyes and place on the fruit roll up strip.

Use the piping gel to make their mouths. Give them different expressions.

I used a small leaf cutter to make the ties for their masks. You could just cut them freehand.

I used red jelly beans to add tongues to some of them.

COWABUNGA DUDE! You have Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle cupcakes.
