Bowling Party Cupcakes!
Anyhoo, I made two dozen bowling ball cupcakes for a birthday party this past Saturday. It just so happens that the US Open of Bowling was also this past weekend. It was actually pretty interesting because the bowler that won (Pete Weber) was creating quite a stir. But, I digress!
I started with baking 12 yellow and 12 chocolate cupcakes (the other two dozen went tightly wrapped in the freezer for snacking). My client requested purple bowling balls, but I didn't want to make them just solid purple. I wanted them to look marble-y, like real bowling balls.
So I started with a lighter purple on each cupcake and gave them a rough smooth (heh makes sense but doesn't at the same time)
So, my lovely readers, I will be on hiatus for a little while. Time to pack up my shorts and bathing suits and head on down to Florida for a much-needed vacation! Perhaps I shall bombard you with stories and non-confectionary pictures when I return mwahahaha!
