I saw this in All You magazine…
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.

I like to help people find unique ways to do things in order to save time & money — so I write about “outside the box” ideas that most wouldn’t think of. As a lifelong dog owner, I often share my best tips for living with and training dogs. I worked in Higher Ed over 10 years before switching gears to pursue activities that I’m truly passionate about. I’ve worked at a vet, in a photo lab, and at a zoo — to name a few. I enjoy the outdoors via bicycle, motorcycle, Jeep, or RV.
