|Bake and frost cupcakes with flesh-toned frosting (okay--mine ARE a little pale!)|
PLUS, our St. Pete Rays were in the playoffs, so we're all pretty excited about baseball around here. To honor the occasion and the theme, I found two pictures of baseball cupcakes that looked do-able.
The first features a doughnut hole dipped in white chocolate and mounted on a grassy cupcake. The second turns a cupcake into a player's face, then adds a cap made from dipped chocolate and a chocolate-coated marshmallow cookie.
I pulled them together, but did have to make a couple of changes, none of which suited the cupcakes very well. The instructions called for the hats to be attached to the cupcake with a pretzel stick, and I didn't have any. I "glued" the hats onto the cupcake with frosting, but had to do it at an angle which obscured most of the player's "face."
|Add cereal O's, jellybeans, whatever you have for facial features|
So--though my baseballs weren't as smooth and solid as I would have liked, I thought they'd do in a pinch. For a pinch hit, maybe. (Groan.)
