Pinterest inspired cupcakes

Today Iam linking up with AP for her weekly pinterest project link up.

My son just turned 7 and he wanted a baseball party, I didn't really want the typical grocery store bakery cake nor did I want to pay $100 for a fancy cake. So I turned to pinterest and gathered my ideas and here is what  I came up with.

I used store bought cake mix and I made homemade buttercream icing. The toppers came from Party City.

Buttercream Icing

1/2 cup of vegetable shortning
1/2 cup of softened butter
1tsp of vanilla
4c of powerderd sugar

mix shortning and butter with your blender then add vanilla, slowly add your sugar one cup at a time until mixed well.
