Well, after my baseball cookie success, I volunteered to make cupcakes for My Oldest's end of season party. I did cheat a bit since we had a busy weekend and used a cake mix for the cupcakes... yes, I do prefer a from-scratch cupcake, but honestly the kids don't seem to care and it made life that much easier this time.

I decorated these free-hand and used a very simple buttercream frosting. Now that I've somewhat figured out baseballs, I need to move on to something different next time I decide to break out the Wilton decorating tips. The party is tonight, and I already checked with My Oldest and he said they look great. What do you think?

My muffin tins must be a little shallow because I had some batter left. So, rather than let it go to waste, I poured into one of my pretty mini glass dishes and baked a small cake. I think My Boys will enjoy having a special one just for us to enjoy.

This post is going to be short but, I promise to return tomorrow with something delicious to share!
