First of all: I completely changed the blog! How do you like it? I’d love some feedback. And now onto some baking:
One Saturday morning, I missed a couple of texts from a friend. By the time I read them, here’s the story I got: *basically* the cake they attempted for their son’s birthday didn’t turn out, the party was in 3 1/2 hours, could I make something, and then never mind, that’s not nearly enough notice.
well, I’m not one to pass up making some treats. So I called her to find out exactly what she wanted, and that I would definitely make some football themed cupcakes! Perfect time of year for it! I had to think fast, and here’s what I came up with:
I started with this white cake recipe, in cupcake form. It makes exactly 36 cupcakes!
Then I made a triple batch of buttercream, divided it and left some white, colored part brown and most green. (I did have a fair amount left over, but better too much than too little right?)
I piped the grass with the Wilton grass tip #233, then the footballs with a #10, and the lacing with a #2.
