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?

Championship Chocolate Cupcakes

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!

Super Bowl Cupcakes in Eggshells

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?
