After my daughter’s wedding, I gave coupons to all the people who helped us out which were good for one free baked good – cake, cookies, cupcakes, you name it and so my friend Teresa texted me to cash in on her coupon for some cupcakes for her son Janson’s birthday. He likes sports, baseball in particular so I figured a variety of sports themed cupcakes would be good. I made a regular batch of chocolate cupcakes although I did add chocolate chips to them and then frosted the baseball and basketball ones in my favorite vanilla buttercream frosting. I dipped the baseball cupcakes in white decorating sugar and then made the red lines with Twizzlers Pull ‘N’ Peels. I dipped the basketball cupcakes in orange decorating sugar and then made the black lines with thin black licorice. For the footballs, I first frosted them with Nutella then dipped them in chocolate jimmies and then cut up white Airheads to make the football stitching. I think they came out pretty cute! Happy Birthday Janson!
