I made these golf themed cheesecake brownie cupcakes for my brother-in-law, Josh, for his birthday. This was made for the same party that I made my sister's high heel cupcakes for (see this post).
These brownie cupcakes were from the same batch that I used for Carissa's teacher's triathlon themed cupcakes a couple days earlier (see this post). My mom mixed the cheesecake topping up for me and added some green food coloring to tint it. It was just an instant cheesecake mix. I put the cheesecake mixture in a piping bag and used a grass tip to pipe the grass on top of the brownie cupcakes.
I made some golf themed accessories out of fondant to go on the cupcakes. The golf balls were just a small ball of fondant that I dotted with gray food coloring, I think I used a toothpick with a little of the tip broken off (takes longer than you think it would :) ). I applied a little pressure when dotting the food coloring on to make slight dimples in the ball. To make the flags I rolled out some yellow, red, and white fondant and cut out the rectangles. Then I attached the fondant flags to a toothpick. I let the flags dry upright so the flag would drape down some and look a little more natural. The golf clubs were made by painting a toothpick with gray food coloring, attaching some brown fondant at the top for the grip, and then attaching some gray fondant at the bottom shaped like a club head.
I grouped cupcakes together to resemble a golf course. Then I arranged the flags, golf balls, and clubs on the cupcakes. I was going to make some holes in a few of the cupcakes, but as I started to try it I realized that it wasn't looking intentional and was going to be more of a headache than it was worth.
