GOLF BALL CUPCAKES


I made cupcakes for a friend this week who had surgery, and we all love to play golf.




These turned out just as cute as they could be.  And tasted just as good as they were cute!!





Do you like to golf or have a friend or family member who likes to golf?  If so, these are the perfect cupcakes to make and take.

I kept it very simple by using a box cake mix (insert gasp here from all of you that don't like box cake mixes, but you can always make chocolate cake from scratch).

I made a buttercream frosting and used a Wilton tip to get the look of grass.

I used white chocolate wafers to make the golf balls.  I ordered the candy mold from Amazon.  

To make the candy golf balls, I used Ghiradelli white chocolate wafers and followed the directions on the package for melting them in the microwave.  I used a spoon to fill each golf ball mold and put them in the refrigerator for 15 - 20 minutes and popped them out by turning the mold upside down on the countertop.  

I made the cupcakes using a box of chocolate cake mix following the directions on the back of the box.  I substituted 2% milk for the water.

For the frosting I mixed together: 

1 stick of unsalted butter - room temperature
4 cups of powdered sugar (sifted)
1 teaspoon of pure vanilla extract
3 to 4 teaspoons of Half and Half

I tinted the frosting with green Wilton color gel.  I placed the golf ball in the middle of the cupcake and frosted around the ball to the edges of the cupcake by piping the frosting on with a Wilton tip.

I only made 12 cupcakes, and this was just enough frosting to frost the 12 cupcakes.  If you make 18 to 24 cupcakes, you will need to, of course, make more frosting.

You can't beat cute!!
