Baseball Team Gift Ideas!
DIY Baseball Cupcakes
My 3 little boys all play little league baseball and my husband volunteers to coach them after work. I absolutely love watching all of my guys on the field. Making memories that none of us will ever forget.
It’s nearing the end of the season so I decided to make baseball theme cupcakes for the team party! Today, I’d love to show you how I decorated them!
You will need...
Wilton Piping tip #3
Wilton Piping tip #233
2 Piping bag
Red decorating icing
White sugar crystals
I used regular boxed cake mix and made 24 cupcakes following the directions on the box. I purchased the cupcake liners here from Party City.
Once the cupcakes are baked and cooled, its time to decorate!
Place one heaping mound of white buttercream icing onto the top on your cupcake. Spread it out to the edges to create a dome shape. I used a butter knife but you can also you a small angled spatula.
Next, gently press the entire cupcake in the bowl of sugar crystals. Be sure to maintain the dome shape as your pressing in the sugar crystals.
Next, take your red decorating icing in your piping bag with the Wilton #3 tip, start making the baseball stitching.
For the grass decorated cupcakes, start by adding a thing layer of green buttercream to the tops of the cupcake. Next, using a piping bag with a Wilton #233 tip add the grass design.
Tip- No time to bake? Use store bought cupcake! Simply purchase pre-made cupcakes with white icing and decorate!
It’s my office/prop/ craft room reveal day!!! Yay! I use this space to store all the things. Craft supplies, event decor, props, etc.
It’s still a work in progress but it works perfectly for now.
I love having everything grouped together by color. It’s so much easier grabbing things I need when it’s organized this way.
I’ve collected my cake stands and platters from mainly HomeGoods and World Market. (Two of my favorite stores)
I found these cute little storage containers from the Dollar Tree! They store my balloon collection perfectly!
The shelving units were purchased second hand but similar ones can be found here on Amazon.
My desk is probably the piece that I love the most about the space.
I purchased it here from Home Depot. It’s came with a larger center piece but I use that in my bedroom. I actually purchased two of these console sets and use the other one as a tv stand in my living room.
Inside the desk cabinets is where I store my Cricut vinyls and random craft supplies.
The only area of the room not pictured is the closet. That’s where I store my event table linens. I also have a 3-drawer plastic storage unit to hold ribbons, card stock and craft supplies. Once I get that organized I’ll update this post. Promise!
Eventually, alllll of this will be moved downstairs to the other spare bedroom and this space will become something completely different! Stay tuned!

These are sooooo good! I love presenting them in small individual cups instead of one large dish. They are also extremely hardy and filling. Im honestly stuffed after one cup!
