Basketball Cupcakes are perfect if you are having a sports themed birthday party! One of my son's is a sports fanatic and wanted basketball cupcakes for his party. So I got to thinking how could I make them, because I do not order or get cakes from the stores. I prefer to save money by making them myself. I also like for my boys to know that they are homemade and made with love from their Momma!
These basketball cupcakes are super easy to make and all of your guests will love them. You just need orange frosting, black frosting tube (easier to decorate with) and cupcakes. I used Funfetti® - Pillsbury Baking but if you cannot buy any, you can use white frosting and add orange food coloring until you get the desired color. I whipped the frosting on and then I used a basketball to draw the lines on. I'll admit the first cupcake didn't look that great but by the time I got to last one I was a pro putting the lines on! My son was so happy and loved them!
