45 min
1 hr 40 min



1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder

1/4 teaspoon salt

3/4 cup sugar

6 tablespoons Land O Lakes® Butter, softened

2 large Land O Lakes® Eggs

1 teaspoon vanilla

1/2 cup milk

1/2 cup mini semi-sweet chocolate chips


4 cups powdered sugar

2/3 cup Land O Lakes® Butter, softened

3 to 5 tablespoons milk

Food color


Candy-coated milk chocolate pieces

Posterboard (14x11-inch) paper

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Heat oven to 350°F. Grease and flour 8 (6-ounce) custard cups; set aside.

  2. STEP 2

    Combine flour, baking powder and salt in bowl; set aside.

  3. STEP 3

    Combine sugar and 6 tablespoons butter in another bowl; beat at medium speed until creamy. Add eggs and vanilla; continue beating until well mixed. Add flour mixture alternately with 1/2 cup milk, beating at low speed after each addition. Stir in chocolate chips.

  4. STEP 4

    Divide batter evenly among prepared custard cups. Bake 20-23 minutes or until toothpick inserted near center comes out clean. Cool on wire racks 5 minutes. Loosen edge of cupcake by running knife around inside edge. Carefully remove cupcakes from custard cups. Cool completely.

  5. STEP 5

    Combine powdered sugar, 2/3 cup butter and enough milk for desired frosting consistency in bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until smooth and creamy. Reserve 1/2 cup frosting.

  6. STEP 6

    Divide remaining frosting into small bowls for as many colors as desired. Stir 1 to 2 drops food color into each bowl; mix well. If necessary, cut top of cupcakes off so surface is flat. Place cupcakes onto serving platter, flat-side down. Frost rounded side of each cupcake with desired color frosting; smooth frosting.

  7. STEP 7

    Fit pastry bag with small hole decorator tip; fill with reserved white frosting. Starting at center top of cupcake, pipe five radiating lines over top and down sides of cake (to look like seams in baseball cap). Place 1 candy-coated chocolate piece at center top.

  8. STEP 8

    Cut 8 (3 1/2-inch) circles from paper; write names on brims, if desired. Place circles halfway under cupcakes, forming hat brims.

Tip #1

- Use custard cup to draw circles on paper for hat brims.

Tip #2

- Batter can be baked in baking cup-lined muffin pan. Prepare and bake as directed. Remove baking cup liners; frost and decorate as desired. 12 cupcakes

I used the recipe just to make plain cupcakes no baseball caps, and they turned out great, very moist!
