Golf Cupcakes

If you’re looking for Freestyle Friday, click here!  I also have a giveaway running until Tuesday!

So yesterday I showed you the cupcakes-in-a-jar I made, but I didn’t show you my leftovers.  I had 9 cupackes left that I frosted up and decorated for my husband, the cake-a-holic:
I’d say he’s an avid golfer… but his passion is more the outing than the golfing.  He’s a fan of [ahem] celebrating going golfing moreso than golfing itself.  Still, I thought he’d appreciate 9 holes of his very own. 
I just covered the frosting in green sugar, and cut triangles out of scrapbook paper and used scrapbooking adhesive (the double-sided sticky stuff) to wrap them around toothpicks.  I made a couple cupcakes have brown sugar sand traps.  I even accidentally dropped one of the balls into the sand trap… you know, just like when I go golfing for real.  *sigh*
(Incidentally, the “balls” are actually princess pearls from a Disney Princess decorator mix that I found at the grocery store.  Don’t tell my husband.  Princess pearls are definitely not manly.)
As you can see, I’m obviously no pro decorator, but these were certainly a big hit for being leftovers!
