Football Truffle Cupcakes

On a weekend where I made a large and somewhat complicated birthday cake, you'd think I'd get done, immediately relax and possibly go for a run due to all of the excess frosting that ended up in my belly.

Instead I made 100 cupcakes topped with cookie dough truffle footballs for a graduation party.  Which led to even more frosting.  Belly hurty.

Thank goodness for my husband - without him, I would have been up until midnight getting these done... and the kitchen would still be a disaster.  

The flavors: 
- Strawberry cake filled cake with raspberry butter cream (add seedless raspberry jam to taste)
- White cake filled with dulce de leche butter cream (add duche de leche to taste)

... all piped with green butter cream "grass" 

The truffles:
- Form cookie dough truffles into football shapes and pipe on accents with white chocolae.
