In honor of the 2010 FIFA World Cup Finale being tomorrow, we decided to bake a special batch of World Cup-themed cupcakes! We decorated some with the flags of Spain and Holland, and on others we covered with green-colored coconut as grass and experimented in making "cake balls" to be the new design of the FIFA soccer ball. The cake balls were a mixture of cake and frosting balled up in a white chocolate shell, with vanilla frosting on top for decoration.
We made one cupcake featuring Paul, the "oracle octopus" that has predicted the outcome of many games in this year's Cup, never having being wrong yet. Last but not least, we made an extra special ¡GOL! cake featuring the green coconut grass, and another cake ball inside a white chocolate soccer goal.
Flavors of cake/ frosting: homemade funfetti cake, vanilla frosting
