For the cupcakes:
1 Box Cake Mix
1 Bottle Green Food Coloring
For the frosting:
2 (8 Ounce) Package Cream Cheese, Softened
1 Stick Unsalted Butter, Softened
1 Tablespoon Vanilla Extract
3 ½ Cups Powdered Sugar
In a large mixing bowl, add the cream cheese, butter and vanilla. Using a hand mixer, mix well. Slowly add in the powdered sugar 1/2 cup at a time until the frosting is thick and fluffy. Set aside. Preheat your oven and prepare the cake batter as directed on the box of cake mix.
Add 1 tablespoon of green food coloring or enough to reach desired shade of green and mix the batter very well. Line a muffin pan with cupcake liners and fill each muffin cup 3/4 full of the cake batter. Bake the cupcakes as directed. Remove from the oven and allow to cool completely. (I recommend 30-60 minutes)
Frost each of the cupcakes with the cream cheese frosting and garnish with green sprinkles if desired and serve.
