  1. After colouring the fondant, roll it out on a working surface covered with a bit of icing sugar, this way it won't stick. Cut out twelve 5 cm disks. Use some white fondant to make some lines so that the disks will resemble tennis ball. Set aside.

  3. Mix all the dried ingredients in a large mixing bowl. 
  4. Add the wet ingredients and whisk until well combined.
  5. Divide the mixture between 12 muffin cases and bake for about 18 mins or until a toothpick inserted in the centre comes out clean. 
  6. To make the frosting beat together the mascarpone cheese, double cream, condensed milk, green food colouring and vanilla extract with an electric whisk.
  7. Add the frosting to a piping bag fitted with a noozle of your choice.
  8. Pipe the frosting onto the cupcakes. 
  9. Top each cupcake with a fondant tennis ball. 
  10. Enjoy!
