* To make a tennis ball: Frost cupcake in the “tennis ball” green frosting. Pipe two arcs in white on top.
* To make a soccer ball: Frost cupcake in white. Using the pastry cone filled with chocolate frosting, make a pentagon in the center of the cupcake and fill in with chocolate frosting. Make a line from each of the points of the pentagon out to the edge of the cupcake. At the edge of each of the lines, pipe and fill a triangle shape.
* Place finished cupcakes in a cupcake tree or on top of the coconut “turf” on a serving platter.

Note: Cupcakes can freeze for up to two months.
