First, heat the oven to 350 degrees F. In a large mixer bowl, combine the 2/3-cup butter and vanilla and sprinkle with some sugar. Beat these together on a low speed till the whole mixture turns fluffy. Continue this and whilst doing so, add the eggs, one at a time. Once the mixture turns creamy, add all the remaining ingredients of the cupcake.
Now, you need to pour this into 8 custard cups, greased and floured in advance. Then, place these custard cups into a jellyroll pan and bake the preparation for around 20 minutes. Let it cool down for about 5 minutes. Once done, remove from cups and let it cool down completely.
Then, you need to combine all the frosting ingredients in a large mixer. Add all the ingredients except for the food color. Beat these ingredients at a medium speed. Once the mixture turns smooth and creamy, you need to reserve around ½ cup of the frosting. Then, you need to divide the remaining frosting into small bowls.
This would be as per the number of colors you desire. Add around 1-2 drops of color into each bowl. Mix this well. Once done, you can even cut the upper area of the cupcake so that the surface appears flat. This flat surface can thus be placed on the downside. Now, you need to frost the round area of the cupcake.
Once you fill the pastry bag with white frosting, begin decorating at the center portion of the cupcake. Create 5 lines over the top and bottom sides of the cupcake. This should resemble the seams of a baseball cap. Next, place the chocolate piece at the center portion of the cupcake.
Then, you need to cut the front portions of hat pieces from paper so that these can be placed with the cupcakes to give it a feeling of a baseball cap. Place these cut portions of paper below the cupcake to give it the look.
