In honor of March Madness, blogger Liz, from the clever blog ‘Hoosie Homemade,’ created these Basketball Cupcakes to satisfy her sweet-toothed sports fans. Featuring a blue velvet variety in support of Kentucky and a pro-Indiana red velvet stunner, these sporty sweets are the perfect game day indulgence.
Carefully crafted using strategically placed orange sprinkles and black liquorice on a bed of cream cheese icing, these Basketball Cupcakes are sure to dazzle. Transform these cupcakes into a sugary slam dunk by adding a shortbread cookie made up like a backboard using royal icing. The lucky basketball fans in your household will be at a loss for words when you swoop in with a platter of these athletic confections at halftime.
The tastiest way to celebrate victory or ease the pain of defeat, these Basketball Cupcakes are the ideal sporty couch-side snack.
