There are several ways to make Football Cupcakes. It will be easy to Score a Touchdown with by serving these decorated cupcakes at your child's birthday party or your Superbowl party.
Football Cupcake # 1
What you will need for these Cupcakes:
Decorator Gel in a Tube
Large Chocolate Covered Nuts
Thin Pretzel Sticks (Extra)
Fruit Roll Ups or Triangular Cut Paper Pendants or Team Stickers
Bake your cupcakes and frost them. Use a grass green cupcake frosting. (That's white with green food coloring!) Now you have just made your "Field".
Get a tube of white cake decorating gel. Draw white stripes, these are the football field yard lines, across each cupcake.
Use a chocolate cover nut (your football!) with some lines drawn on it, decorated like a football with lace marks. (draw one white line down the middle of your candy covered nut, about half way from middle to end length wise. Make 3 lines across this main line. Just look at a football to see the pattern.)
If you want to make a team flag, use a thin pretzel stick and attach a piece of candy rollups to it, or a small triangular or rectangular piece of paper with your favorite football team's name on it. You can also use stickers!
Football Cupcake # 2
Here's another decorating idea!
All you need for these edible pigskins are some brown frosting and some black string licorice for the lace threading. They are easy as can be. Ingredients
Black String Licorice
Frost your baked cupcakes in the light brown frosting...White Frosting with brown food coloring or chocolate iceing with white icing mixed in until you get a color brown you like)
Black string licorice placed with one long "thread" down the middle of your football, and several smaller "threads" crossing over the middle line, just like a real football.
