Free Pirate Printable + Layered Cupcake Tutorial

I am so thankful to have been asked to participate in the give away from A to Zebra Celebrations.  I wanted to give a “little” back to all of our new facebook fan so I created these miniature triangle bunting banner.

Layered Cupcake + Free Pirate Printable

Yesterday while my little ones were napping, I made adorable red and white layered cupcakes using red velvet & french vanilla cake mix.

Red Velvet Cake Mix
After mixing up both batters, I spooned about 1 tablespoons of red velvet mix in to the bottom of cupcake baking cup.

Next, do the same using the French Vanilla batter making sure the mix reaches the sides and completely covers the bottom layer.

Repeat the previous step using the Red Velvet mix and place cupcakes in the oven.

Once the cupcakes cool a little frosting and a quick dip in some sand {crunched up graham crackers}.

then add the chocolate treasure chest {Hershey Nugget} and our free mini Pirate Banner.
