Baseball cupcake with licorice

You may have seen baseball cupcakes with the stitches piped in red icing or gel. Those are fun, but what if you don’t want to haul out the pastry bag and tips, or your hand is a little unsteady? Licorice can even the score.

What You Need: 1 cupcake; white or off-white frosting; red string licorice (such as Twizzlers Pull-N-Peel); scissors.

How to Make It: Frost cupcake. Cut strand of licorice long enough to curve in a U shape on top of the cupcake. Cut about 9 smaller bits of licorice in equal lengths. Arrange long strand in curve and press slightly into frosting. Arrange smaller pieces on top for stitching. (They should stick to the larger strand.)
