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!
