Spring is in the air. Well, sort of. It might be another couple of weeks until we really get some spring green around here. Alright, maybe more than a couple. But a girl can hope.
In the mean time, if you are a golf fan, you can at least dream about hitting the links. You know. A warm spring morning when the dew is still coating the grass and you have already hit the first tee.
Yeah, that should help you get in the mood.
It turns out that bunny birthday and garden parties aren’t the only popular spring soirees. Golf parties also hold a place of honor this time of year.
The best part about a golf party is that any one can have one. You can be young or old. Love the game or just warming up to it. Doesn’t really matter. Golf parties are fun. And a great way to get creative with your party decor.
So, I am really excited to share these really fun golf cupcakes with you. I created these free printable golf flags to put on top. You can make these golf cupcakes to celebrate the first day of the season, a girls’ luncheon or your son’s first hole in one. Even if it was just when he was playing mini golf.
To make these golf cupcakes, I started with pre-made chocolate cupcakes with vanilla buttercream from my favorite local bakery. Some of my favorite cupcakes to make are those that I don’t actually have to bake myself. It turns out that you can really dress up a bakery made cupcake for your event without all of the fuss of turning on the oven.
On top of the golf cupcakes, I sprinkled dark green sanding sugar(affiliate) for the golf green. You can also pour some of the sanding sugar into a bowl and dip the top of the cupcake in. This also helps flatten the top a little bit.
Now, it’s time to make the golf flag.
You will need:
White Lollipop Sticks, 4-1/2 Inch (affiliate)
Free printable Golf Flag Design – blue version or pink version
Glue Dots Craft Dots (affiliate)
1. Print out your free printable golf flag design. There are two different designs – a blue version and a pink one. You can choose to make your flags one color or mix them up.
For the golf flag design, I included all of the numbers so you could create a set of golf cupcakes that represented an actual golf green. If you are interested in just one number, you can find the editable version in our shop here.
2. Cut out your golf flags using scissors.
3. Place a Glue Dot in the center of the flag.
Add the white lollipop stick to the center of the flag. I usually place the flag about 1/4 to 1/3 of the way down the stick. This way you have some of the flag stick poking out of the top like a real golf flag stick.
4. Use another Glue Dot to attach the flag tips together.
5. Place your golf flag on top of your cupcake. Add a white gumball for the golf ball near the flag stick. This will make the golf ball look like it’s ready to roll into the hole.
Your golf cupcakes are the perfect dessert for a golf birthday, baby shower or even a treat after a hard played round of mini golf. Not quite ready to make your own golf cupcakes? Pin me for later…
