Reynolds Kitchens® Tips

Reynolds Kitchens tip

Making Meal Magic is simple. Reynolds products help you to make your meals easier and faster. Learn how to cook your best with Reynolds Kitchens.


  • Use yellow pastel baking cups and light colored cake to score match points at a team party or with your favorite tennis enthusiast.
  • Reynolds® Yellow Pastel Baking Cups
  • Reynolds® Cut-Rite® Wax Paper
  • White, yellow, or lemon cake
  • White frosting
  • Yellow nonpareils -- available at most supermarkets


Step 1

BAKE light colored cupcakes (yellow, lemon, or white) in Reynolds® Yellow Pastel Baking Cups in yellow pastel in order to get the most authentic looking tennis ball.

Step 2

LINE your counter with Reynolds® Cut-Rite® Wax Paper so clean-up will be simple.

Step 3

SPREAD the top of each cupcake with white frosting and, while the frosting is still moist, dip the frosted cupcake in nonpareils to cover entire top. If areas are not covered, sprinkle more nonpareils over the top and press gently to cover completely. Reynolds Kitchens Tip: To make an even surface, dip a small knife or spreader into a bowl of warm water and gently shake off the excess before smoothing over frosting.

Step 4

PIPE markings onto the tennis ball using a #3 tip. It may be easiest to accomplish if you think of it as a rounded hill shape.

Step 5

A DIFFERENT TAKE To make the tennis balls look at home on the tennis court, bake in Reynolds bright green Party baking cups!
