Naturally green cupcakes!

Here is the rule:
Before serving somene this cake, ask what is inside and get impressed with the creative guesses you get AND
enjoy their suprise when they hear this is 'spinach cake!'
No! it does not taste spinach at all!
Great for not-so-spinach-lover kids a!
If you are not friends with food coloring like me, here is a formulas for naturally green cakes!
You can call this Hulk cake to make it more attractive for little ones.
If you are not scared to reveal about spianch, you can call 'Favorite of pop eye!" as well!
naturally green cupcakes with colorful sprinkles 
(nope, sprinkles are not natural:()
3 eggs
1  cup sugar
1 cup of spinach, washed, drained
3/4 cup  oil
2 1/2 cups flour, sifted
1 tsp baking powder

2 cups of whipped cream, I prefer extra creamy

Kiwi, pistachios, coconut or cake crumbs

Green crust cheesecake!
How to make the green cakes:

Blend the spinach with oil at high speed
Beat the eggs and sugar with mixer.
Add the spinach puree , mix well.
Then add flour and baking powder. 
Bake at 350 F.
Cut cake into two after it cools down
Put 3/4 cups of cool whip, place the half of the cake on top and cover the whole cake with cool whip.
Top with  Kiwi, pistachios, coconut or cake crumbs that you saved from the middle of the cake when you cut.
This can be a birthday cake as well as colorful cupcakes or even a green cheesecake crust!
