Since I was going to be visiting friends, I decided to bake cute, summery, cupcakes in honor of the mid-week celebration. I didn't want to go too patriotic, so when I found this pic on Pinterest, I knew that I had to make them. Mine didn't come out as perfect ( I have to work on perfecting my piping skills), but they were tasty and surely made a statement! Oh and just to spill my secret, I had a little help from my good friends Betty and Duncan...
1 Box of Vanilla Cake Mix
1 Can of Vanilla Frosting
Mini Chocolate Chips
Red Food Coloring
Green Food Coloring
1. Follow the directions on the box to make the cake. Before separating into the cupcake pan, add red food coloring, and a hearty amount chocolate chips.
2. Dye the vanilla frosting green, and once the cupcakes have cooled, pipe on the frosting in a spiral pattern. Place a few chocolate chips on each cupcake to look like seeds.
