Softball Cupcakes

Surprisingly, this was my first attempt at making red velvet cupcakes. As I mentioned before, red velvet is a relatively new cupcake flavor to me. I had it for the first time about a year ago. I was instantly hooked.

I have been a stand-by player on my husband's company softball team for the past three months. Since Monday was our last game I decided to bake some cupcakes. I figured this would be the perfect opportunity to bake red velvet cupcakes, since I hadn't made them before. I used a box of Duncan Hines Red Velvet cake mix. Usually I just frost the cupcakes or add some sprinkles on top. I haven't ever done anything too fancy (besides the Cupcake Bites), so I decided to try something different. Drawing the laces on the softballs was actually easier than I imagined. I used food coloring to dye the frosting. I put the frosting in a sandwich baggie and cut off a small piece from the corner. Then I was ready to decorate!
They turned out great! Who can resist red velvet? Not me!
