Play Pool! Cupcakes



Today was my husband's birthday and I wanted to make him something fun. The kids and I flipped through our favorite cupcake book (Hello, Cupcake!) and thought he would really like these since he loves playing pool.



Instead of using the real triangle from the pool table I made one out of chocolate covered pretzels. This is where the kids got involved and they had a blast! It was a messy process, but I was glad to let them help me and they loved it.



We used vanilla cupcakes which I baked last night in order to make the decorating easier today. The toppings included vanilla frosting, colored decorating sugar, white chocolate circles and dark chocolate numbers.



These were really simple to make and a blast to present to our billiards lover! Apparently they tasted good too since they disappeared within hours :)



I really wanted an eight ball but couldn't find black decorating sugar. I tried making my own but it looked more like grey sugar. Our local stores only carry the black around Halloween. I think I'll stock up on it this year just in case.
