Tuesday Toppers: Basketball Cupcake

Tuesday Toppers: Basketball Cupcake

This week I'm showing the last of the 3 sports cupcakes. The basketball. It isn't quite basketball season yet, but since it's just around the corner I decided to show it to you this week. Here's what you need to make one:


-Fontant smoother
-Black edible marker
-Orange fondant (made with orange, and a touch of brown and red)


-Take a 1" ball and flatten slightly with the fondant smoother


-Using the fondant smoother again, round off the edges.


basketball topper

-Take the black edible pen and make a two lines that cross in the center, then a half circles on each side.

Don't forget to check in next week when I start my halloween cupcakes!

Happy Tuesday!


  1. Hi Julie. Your cupcake toppers are amazing and you're one very talented lady. I'm starting my own blog and I'm writing about my love for beautiful things, which include decorated cakes and cupcakes. I want to ask for your permission to talk about your creations? Maybe include some of your pictures in my blog? I'll mention your name and your blog name as well so people can visit your site.

    I'm just starting out and the blog is not as beautiful as yours, it is littleclementine.typepad.com.
