60th Birthday Golf Cupcakes

In addition to the baby shower this weekend, I was also asked to make three dozen cupcakes for a golf lover's 60th birthday party. Half were vanilla, half were chocolate. I started out by making white chocolate golf balls using a chocolate mold I found.

I baked the 18 vanilla and 18 chocolate cupcakes (well, I first baked 24 vanilla cupcakes and threw a dozen of them out, but I'll save that for a separate post). Once they cooled, I mixed the vanilla icing and tinted it green so it would eventually look like grass. Using Wilton tip 233 (it has multiple openings that create the grass effect), I piped the icing onto the cake. Then I set the golf ball onto the center of the cupcake.

Boxed up and ready to go!

After finishing the cupcakes, I decided they needed something more. After thinking about it for a little while, I decided to make tiny golf flags (clearly not in proportion to the giant golf ball!) that spelled out "Happy Birthday Gary". My handwriting even looked surprisingly nice.

Hi, your golf cupcakes are fantastic and they have given me inspiration for my brother's 40th birthday. Would you mind me asking where you purchased the mould from? I have bought one which doesn't give as good a result as what you have. Any help would be much appreciated.

Regards
Julie
