Milk and Honey Vanilla Soccer Ball Chiffon Cupcakes

My younger kid's busmate would like some soccer ball cupcakes for his birthday so I made these mini soccer balls!

Soccerballs resting on a pandan flavoured chiffon turf!

I adapted the recipe from the soccer ball cupcakes I made a few months ago but with honey added for extra flavour and moisture.

Susanne lent me her set of silicone cakepop moulds and I had the honor of being the first one to use it :p. As chiffon cakes cling to the sides of the ungreased container they are baked in, I didn't dare to try baking spherical balls of chiffon cupcakes as it would be really challenging to unmould the cakes from the mould. I decided to bake them as hemispheres instead. You may use glass or metal moulds with round bottoms to make these too.

Dissolve some cocoa powder and charcoal powder in cool boiled water to make black paint. Make the soccer ball designs on the cakes using the carrot stamper, a toothpick and fine brush. Store the painted balls in air tight container to let the paint dry. I didn't have huge flat containers so I left the balls on a tray placed in jumbo ziplock bag.

Aren't they cute? The baking part is easy but to print many soccer balls is quite a lot of work and requires much patience. I had to make 28 balls but there was enough batter for 40.

All packed and ready to party!

With love,
