FOUR!! Golf course cupcakes

My husband is an avid golfer (to say the least).
When I asked him what fun cupcakes I should make for our family celebration today (4th of July, WHOO) he jokingly said..."Hmmm. a golf course." Well here you go, Mr. Jokester...with a bunker included.
Happy 4th of July everyone!!

These are actually easier than you might think. Really!

NEEDS: 24 Regular sized cupcakes in green liners.
1 tub of vanilla frosting
10 Nilla wafers (crushed)
Green food coloring
Green gift shred (for the sides, optional)
Chocolate golf balls (found at Partyland)

Frost 6 cupcakes with white or tan frosting (to make tan, mix 1 Tablespoon cocoa powder and 2 drops of yellow food coloring.) Then dip the tops into the crushed Nilla Wafers.
Frost 7 cupcakes with green frosting, then dip tops into green decorating sugar. Arrange ALL of the cupcakes now, in the pattern you would like your course to look like.
Tip the rest of the cupcakes with tinted green frosting- leaving peaks after each stroke to mimic grass. Fill in the gaps in between the cupcakes with frosting.
Once you are finished piping, add the chocolate golf balls, stick a flag near the hole (made out of a junior mint)


  1. Cute idea...hopefully you'l have a 19th hole for your party!

  2. This is the coolest! One of my kids is turning 18 and he is also an avid golfer--this sure beats a cake! I might have to do nine holes!

  3. wow! Yours came out perfect! You are so talented. My gumballs looked like gumballs with stuff on them. I'm so impressed!
