Soccer Ball Cupcakes

As we near the end of soccer season, I thought I'd share with you a cute little treat to bring to your end of the season party....Soccer Ball Cupcakes.
When you see your little soccer players working so hard each week, it's fun to reward them at the end with something special.

These cupcakes were a breeze to make. Simply bake up your favorite cupcakes and frost with white frosting. I used Aldi's Fit & Active 100 Calorie Snack Packs which are like Oreo Thin Crisps to make the black spots on the balls. You could pipe some black frosting between the cookies, but I found that they were just as cute without all the extra effort ;-)
Place some green tissue paper on the platter to mimic grass, or you could even color some coconut with green food coloring.
Serve it up to your sweaty, smiling soccer players. They'll love you for it! These would also be great to have at a soccer-themed birthday party.

  17. Your idea of using the cookies is genius! They made the cupcakes so much easier to decorate, after I placed the cracker I used frosting to make the lines and they looked fabulous! The kids and the parents went banana's over them!

  18. Bless you fine woman, you just saved my day! Last soccer season I made a feeble attempt at soccer ball cupcakes and failed, this season I was determined to try again. Thank God I dont have to try to free hand the black! You are a genius!
