Last week I shared my son’s M&M’s basketball cake that we made for his 7th birthday. Since his birthday fell during the week we did his sports party with friends this weekend and needed a little treat to give to them. Of course we thought of sports cupcakes. I will be sharing all of the fun we had at the party later this week.
These sports cupcakes were a major hit and the boys had a hard time deciding which ball they wanted to eat.
- Your favorite flavor of cupcakes and frosting
Orange M&Ms bought in bulk
Black M&Ms bought in bulk
- White M&M’s bought in bulk
- Red licorice
To make the basketball cupcakes I frosted with chocolate frosting and then made the black lines out of M&M’s first. Then I filled in with the orange M&M’s. It might be a bit of a stretch but kids like to use their imaginations, right? These were actually the biggest hit of all of the cupcakes. Maybe because they had the most M&M’s. 🙂
The baseball cupcakes were my absolute favorite. Maybe because I love baseball. 🙂 These are pretty self-explanatory but I frosted the cupcakes with white frosting and then made the lines for the baseball with Pull and Peel licorice. Then I just filled in with the white M&M’s.
These were the easiest to make and you know how I love easy! Basically just frost the cupcakes with chocolate frosting and then use white M&M’s turned on their sides to make the stitching of the football. I just alternated the ways I turned the M&M’s and it worked perfectly.
Tomorrow I will be showing off my sons fun sports party. We had 14 little boys there so it was a little chaotic but I decided this was the best type of party to have for a group of boys. So check back for details.
I love using M&M’s to decorate treats and cakes for my kids. It makes for fun and unique cakes and is perfect for those who are cake-decorating-challenged like me. 🙂
Here are a couple other creations we have made with M&M’s.
Now that I know you can buy different colors in bulk, the possibilities are endless!
