Billiard Ball Cupcakes

So let me clue you in on a little secret of mine. If my baking project requires a lot of time for decorating I — gasp — use cake mix from a box and store-bought frosting. I have no problems admitting to that and I defend my choice! ;) So these cupcakes are Betty Crocker white cake mix and vanilla frosting. No big recipe to post today! They are decorated with colored sugars and white Necco wafers. Use a little black frosting to write the numbers and you’ll be good to go. I even went as far as to find out which number goes on which color ball — so they are all accurate!

      They really aren’t that difficult. Make cupcakes, frost them, and dip them in sprinkles — attach a white Necco w/ the billiard ball # and you’re done!ReplyCancel
