Baseball Cupcakes!

My brother had a baseball tournament this weekend and so I decided I would make some baseball cupcakes for the team! And let me just tell you, they very greatly appreciated them! Haha. :) BTW... They've won both their games so far! But they still have two more games to go. They won one of the games 18 to 5 and the other game they won 15 to 0! Yeah!

Anyways, here's how to make these super cute baseballs!

Baseball Cupcakes

~Vanilla cake mix
~Vanilla frosting*
~Red food dye
~Blue food dye
~Cupcake liners**

*We like Betty Crocker Whipped Butter Cream Frosting ;)

**I found the cutest cupcake liners at Carty City that were perfect for the occasion!


1. Follow the directions on the box of your cake mix.
2. Take two small bowls and fill them with some of the vanilla frosting. Now take the red food dye and color one of the bowls of frosting red. Do the same with the blue food dye and the other bowl of frosting.

3. Get 2 piping bags and the tips you would like and screw the tips onto each bag. (We like the Wilton tip #3 and #4). Use a spoon to transfer the blue frosting into one of the bags and do the same with the red frosting. Set aside for now.

4. Once out of the oven and cooled, frost the cupcakes with the white vanilla frosting.

5. Take your piping bags that you have filled and get ready to start piping! First, use the bag of red frosting and make two curved lines at opposite sides, as in the pictures.
6. Now use the blue frosting bag to 'write' a player's baseball number in the middle of the two curved lines. (Again, use the pictures as references!)

7.Use a toothpick two make it look like the stitching on a baseball. (Also, see picture below).

8. Store in an airtight container and have them ready to serve at the next baseball game! :)

And if you have extra frosting, but you have no idea what to do with it, no worries! We have the perfect idea.....

.....Eat it!

That's what we did! Obviously... :)

  1. How cool! This would be so great for baseball moms! But what a cool idea to do when you are having a get-together to watch a baseball game!
