Baseball Chocolate Chip Cupcakes
We made these for my husband for Father’s Day. Chocolate Chip is his favorite cookie and now cake. I made them earlier so I could share with you. He already ate 4 of them!
These are easy to make and there’s a couple options you can use for the ball and bat on top.
This is the first time I’ve ever made chocolate chip cupcakes and we all love them! I made the bats and balls, the hat and hot dog with fondant. Then I painted them with food coloring. You just shape them, let them sit out for at least 12 hours and then paint them.
Now the chocolate ones (in the photo below) are made with a chocolate mold. It’s very easy and they do taste good with the chocolate icing. I just wanted to try making them with fondant once. Also, with the mold, you could use white chocolate and color it brown with food coloring.
The bigger one on the top I baked in a little aluminum pan I found at the store. Now that’s my husband’s! He gets the big one for Father’s Day! It’s all wrapped up so it’ll be fine on Sunday.
These are just perfect for Father’s Day if he likes baseball. Also, you can paint the hat whatever color his team uses.
For the grass frosting just color the icing green with food coloring. I used Wilton Tip #233. You just put the tip right above the cake, squeeze and pull up. Just try it on a plate or something, to practice. For red coloring on the ball, I used the Wilton Candy Decorating Pens. Yep, it’s edible. If you don’t want to paint the bats, you can always color the fondant before you shape it.
This next photo are the ones I made with chocolate icing and the chocolate molds. As you can see they don’t look as good. I like the ones with the grass and all, better. Don’t you?
