Then add in green food coloring. As much as as little as you want. I remember my brother made a green cake once to surprise us. Because of the ugly shade of green it ended up being after it baked, no one wanted to eat it. Sorry, Kim!

You can do two things with the cupcakes: 1. frost and decorate them or 2. add some marshmallow creme before you frost and decorate them. Depending on how sweet and gooey you want to make them, you can go either way.
