Make some fun football cupcakes! Start with ‘easy vanilla cupcakes’. Then add ‘vanilla buttercream icing’. Finally, top individual cupcakes with one of the following: Edible Footballs — made from caramel candies, with white icing as the stripes on the ball. Pennant Flags — press fruit candies (like Starburst), then cut in 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.
