  • 1 package chocolate cake mix (regular size)
  • 1/4 cup shortening
  • 3 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 2 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 8 drops green food coloring, optional
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 4 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 2 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 1/4 cup baking cocoa
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • GLAZE:
  • 1/2 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 1 tablespoon milk
  • 6 drops green food coloring


  1. Prepare cake mix batter according to package directions; fill 24 paper-lined muffin cups. Bake at 375° for 20-22 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool for 5 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks to cool completely.
  2. For filling, cream the shortening, butter, confectioners' sugar, milk and food coloring until light and fluffy. Cut a small hole in the corner of a pastry or plastic bag; insert #7 round tip. Add filling. Push the tip through the bottoms of paper liners to fill cupcakes (the top of the cupcakes will begin to expand when they are full).
  3. In a small bowl, combine the frosting ingredients; frost cupcakes. Combine glaze ingredients; drizzle over frosting. Yield: 2 dozen.

"This is a wonderful fun cupcake and as a family, the kids and I had fun making them. The cake, filling and frosting were excellent and the cupcakes lasted all of 2 days with friends invited to share."
