It’s the Super Bowl! OK, so the Detroit Lions have yet to make it to the big game, but that doesn’t mean you can’t still cheer on a different team for the big game. Add an array of sweets to your Super Bowl spread with these cupcake recipes. There are plenty of fun ideas to make with your kids before game time. You can make footballs to top the cupcakes with chocolate-covered almonds – just follow the directions on the championship chocolate cupcakes. Or, opt for some other sweet treats! Now who’s ready for some football?
How cute are these championship chocolate cupcakes from Cakewalker? Start with chocolate cupcakes as the base. Then add green frosting, paint on the yard lines with white frosting – then top each with a football. For the footballs, use white frosting to make the threads on chocolate-covered almonds. Touchdown!
Here’s the way to impress your guests – bake cupcake batter into empty eggshells. Then your family has to crack the eggshells to eat the cake. There’s more: dye the eggshells brown and make football threads using a crayon. It will take some time, but hey, the big game only comes once a year so why not make these Super Bowl cupcakes in eggshells from the Cupcake Project?
Time for a field goal kick? Create your own hand-held version of the field goal posts with this recipe for Super Bowl cupcakes from Miss Makes. Follow these step-by-step instructions to make everything from the goal posts to the green grass (hint: it’s sprinkles!).
Add hefty swirls of thick, chocolate frosting on the top of each sweet to make chocolate football cupcakes from Thursday Night Baking. Warning: The decadent frosting in this recipe is whipped with plenty of butter. Make sure to have your kiddos around to lick the frosting bowl.
