White cake mix
Green and chocolate food coloring
Cake pan in any Camo theme shape such as an army tank. Alternatively, you can also use the standard circular or rectangular cake pans.
Preheat the oven as directed on your cake mix pack.
Uniformly divide the cake mix in four mixing bowls. Add green, green plus chocolate, and only chocolate color to these mixtures. Leave the fourth mixture as it is. Start adding the food coloring in small batches so that the color doesn’t become too strong.

Spray the cake pan with a nonstick spray and spoon in the mixtures randomly in blotches. Alternate the color as much as possible so that your cake gets an authentic camo look.

Featured Birthday Bash
I had plan a dino theme party this month for my little dino hunter’s fifth birthday. He had requested this theme 4 months ago and I had ample time to do the preparations. I bought the supplies from MyBirthdaySupplies and saved some valuable dollars that I spent on food.
Since I am not good at crafts and didn’t want to spend time messing with glue, I used the prepackaged invites that were pretty good featuring a dinosaur in a prehistoric background along with a ‘You are invited’ message.
For decorations, I, my son, and my 9 year old daughter drew footprints of dinosaurs throughout our driveway. At the entry door, I put up a signboard stating ‘Let’s roar with the dinosaur’. Making this signboard was very easy. I strained a white cardstock with tea and wrote the message in large-sized calligraphy font. The signboard was looking antique. Whenever a guest entered the party area, we played a loud dino roar that was actually very scary but was apt for this theme. I rented an artificial grass carpet to make the guests feel as if they are walking in a forest. We bought some plastic dino eggs and placed them at strategic locations around the party area. The tableware and Mylar balloons I bought from MyBirthdaySupplies helped me to give a complementing look to my party table. I tied a bunch of solid latex balloons and one Mylar balloon to my child’s stuffed dino toy and used it as a centerpiece.
For food, we had bone-shaped sandwiches that were cut using cookie cutter, animal blood lemonade (used food coloring), hot dogs, pretzel sticks, and much more. The favor bags had plastic dinosaurs, dinosaur shaped rubber bands, marble bounce balls, and squirt guns; all bought from MyBirthdaySupplies. It was a great party, as the kids enjoyed having some prehistoric fun.
