Cupcake Baseballs

Invited to a barbecue with members of a fantasy baseball league as guests, I had only one choice. I had to make baseballs. Cupcake baseballs, that is!

I baked up some chocolate cupcakes and frosted them with vanilla cream cheese buttercream. The cake recipe called for both sour cream and buttermilk, but I settled for three times the sour cream. Though my decision was based solely on the ingredients I had on hand, I was really happy with the results.

Piping the stitches was a little tedious–and I was late for the barbecue–but I did my best! I piped two arcs, then filled in the individual stitches, all in red. It took a lot more red food coloring than I expected (note to self, I need to stock up on food coloring gels), as I was determined not to show up with pink-laced baseballs.

The crowd seemed to think the cupcake baseballs delicious…once they stopped playing with them!
