Golf Course Cupcakes!
This past Sunday (10.10.10!) was the birthday of my beloved's father. He is a HUGE Michigan University fan, but since they had lost their game the day before, I figured I'd make non-fail-reminder-cakes. He is also a golf-player, so I had a cute idea-- golf course cupcakes! I used 12 of the Yellow Almond cupcakes, and designed the tops to resemble a tiny golf course.
I used Wilton Leaf Green coloring to get that vibrant grassy green and a bit of fondant for the tee, golf ball, and hole.
The funnest part was dipping a few of the cupcakes in light brown sugar to make the "sand trap."
And here is some detail of my tiny golf course...
To be honest, I hadn't owned a grass tip until I had to make these cupcakes. I love it!!! I am determined to make spaghetti and meatballs cupcakes!
