baseball cupcakeBaseball season is officially underway. I know because my husband is already yelling at the TV. Here’s a classic way to make cupcakes that look like baseballs. The trick is to use even pressure when you’re piping the lines, and stop squeezing before you pull away.
What You Need: 1 cupcake; white frosting; red icing in premade tube; plastic round tip or metal tip #2 and coupler.
How to Make It: Frost cupcake white. Using even pressure, pipe two curved lines as shown, and on top of them pipe V shapes for the baseball stitching.
