Yankees Cupcakes

I had an order for a young Yankees fan who needed some cupcakes to impress his fellow teammates and ballers, so I started getting to work on some cupcakes using fondant "accessories". A couple days ahead I cut out some fondant discs for baseballs and created a template for some jerseys. I also created tiny picks made out of Yankees images from the web. I went with red, white and blue to go with that hometown baseball feel and I think they were a "homerun!" He really got a kick out of them and his three brothers too, so that's all that really matters!! It was alot of fun making these too, plus I learned a little bit about the Yankees along the way!! Go Team!!

This was a special one of a kind created for the birthday boy:

Here's the whole group of them (sixty to be exact)

These are the baseballs, jerseys and matching swirled cupcakes. There is a Derek Jeter #2 jersey and of course, the birthday boy is #1. Also did the Yankees logo on some of the jerseys.
