Soccer Cupcakes

My son started soccer this past weekend which means I am officially a soccer mom- yikes. I decided to celebrate by making cupcakes. I was inspired by Dukes' and Duchesses who blogged about these, she was inspired by Parents Magazine. I didn't read the directions posted there and instead did my own thing with mistakes included :).

I started with mini Devil's Food cupcakes baked in green liners to represent the grass on the field.

White vanilla frosting, no need to worry about it getting it perfectly smooth.

Place a thin Oreo crisp (found in the 100-calorie packages) in the middle.

Use black gel to draw the lines. Didn't like the look.

Then just the gel without the cookie. Didn't like this either.

Put the gel in a pastry bag with a #2 tip and was much happier with these lines, used the cookie as well.

As you can see I only used one cookie per cupcake since these were mini-cupcakes and not the regular ones used in Parenting magazine.

I was really happy with how these looked and the combination of the Devil's Food cake + Vanilla frosting + Oreo cookies was great!

The kids loved them and the coach was very impressed :)
