  • ¼ cups Water
  • ½ cups Powdered Milk

For cupcakes:

Mix remaining dry ingredients in one bowl; set aside.

Mix remaining wet ingredients (except food coloring) in a separate bowl, then combine with dry ingredients.

Beat with electric mixer until well combined. Add food coloring until you get the shade of green you want.

Pour into paper-lined cupcake pan, filling 1/2 to 2/3 full. These cupcakes don’t rise very much so you can get away with filling the cups a bit more than usual.

Bake at 350 degrees until toothpick inserted in center comes out dry, approximately 15 minutes.

For frosting:

Beat cream cheese and butter until well combined and creamy. Sift in powdered sugar and mix well.
Adjust powdered sugar to taste.
you can also add some vanilla extract if you’d like.
