Updated July 21, 2011

Ingredients

  • 1 box Betty Crocker™ Super Moist™ yellow cake mix
  • Water, vegetable oil and eggs called for on cake mix box
  • 3 containers Betty Crocker™ Rich & Creamy vanilla frosting
  • Assorted food colors
  • Black shoestring licorice
  • Candy-coated fruit-flavored bite-size candies
  • Assorted fruit slice candies
  • 1 tube (0.68 oz) Betty Crocker™ decorating gel, if desired

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F (325°F for dark or nonstick pans). Place paper baking cup in each of 24 regular-size muffin cups. Make and bake cake mix as directed on box for 24 cupcakes. Cool in pans 10 minutes; remove from pans to cooling rack. Cool completely, about 30 minutes. Remove paper baking cups.
  • 2
    Divide frosting among small bowls for as many colors as desired; stir food color into each. Cut slice from top of each cupcake to make a flat surface. Turn cupcakes upside down. Frost cupcakes with frosting.
  • 3
    Starting at center of each cap, place pieces of licorice down sides for seams. Place 1 candy-coated fruit candy at center top. Use fruit slice candies for brims (trim fruit slices if necessary). Pipe team initial or child's name on caps with gel. Store loosely covered.

  • Expand on the baseball theme by accompanying each cupcake with a baseball-size scoop of vanilla ice cream and a sugar cookie "bat" made with refrigerated cookie dough.
  • Chocolate lovers will want to use chocolate cake mix instead of the vanilla!
