Animal Print Cupcakes! {Leopard Cake and Zebra Cake}

These Animal Print Cakes are SO cute and fun!!!  I think any girl would love the fun designs that are not only on the outside, but on the inside too!  Perfect for a baby shower or birthday party!!!  I made these pink, but any color scheme would be just as fun.  The cupcake liners and picks are from Walmart.  I think they are just a Valentine’s Day item.. so get them soon if you want them!

Zebra Print Cupcakes. 


  • 1 White Cake Mix, with ingredients that are on the box to make it
  • 1/4 cup of cocoa powder
  • pink food coloring (or whatever color you want.
  • 24 Cupcake liners


  1. Preheat Oven to 350 degrees. Make cake mix according to the package. Seperate the cake mix into two equal parts in two different bowls. Mix a few drops of food coloring in one half and the cocoa powder in the other half. If the half with cocoa seems too thick... add a tbsp. of water to thin it down.
  2. Put cupcake liners into a muffin tin and using one tsp. at a time add a little pink batter. Right on top of the pink batter add a tsp. of cocoa batter in the middle. Alternate the two batters until you reach about 2/3 of the way full. Each time you add a little batter give the pan a shake to help the batter spread evenly. Repeat with all 24 cupcakes and bake at 350 for 19-23 minutes or until the cake bounces back and a toothpick comes out clean. Enjoy!

These cupcakes do take a little time to make, but they are easy and so cute!  Everyone will wonder how in the world you made them!!!

I first saw how to make the zebra design for a full sized cake on Candice’s blog at All Things Walker.  Check out her Zebra Cake Tutorial!


The Leopard design was also a full sized cake that I scaled down to cupcake size.  See the youtube tutorial from The Crumb Boss!
