It’s a fun way to make colorful (and tasty!) cupcakes for a football party.

Having a viewing party for the upcoming Superbowl?

These would definitely be a hit!

In the magazine, they included the complete recipe for making “Big-Game Cupcakes”. They don’t have the recipe for these fun football cupcakes on their website, so I’m sharing it here for all to enjoy.


How To Make Football Party Cupcakes

First, you start with “easy vanilla cupcakes”. Then add “vanilla buttercream icing”. Finally, top individual cupcakes with one of the following:

Edible Footballs & Goalposts — footballs are made from caramel candies, with white icing as the stripes on the ball. Goal posts are made with pretzel sticks held together with icing.

Pennant Flags — simply press fruit candies (like Starburst) flat, then cut into the shape of sports flags, attach the flags to pretzel sticks, and pipe some icing messages onto the flags.

Tiny Helmets — made from the same fruit candies in different colors, cut in the shape of football helmets, and then pipe some icing onto the helmets for decoration.
