Football season is finally here! Gameday foods can be so much fun to make. We like keeping team spirit and excitement alive on days when we watch the game by making fun, football-themed treats. One of the latest treats we made were these adorable football cupcakes!
Football themed cupcakes are simple to make using a special frosting tip to make grass and then topping them off with . If you haven’t yet tried these, they football shaped candies. They are very similar in taste to candy pumpkins.
You don’t have to be a professional baker to follow this recipe – you just need a desire to want to make a fun sports-themed cupcake for your college or Superbowl party or even Sunday afternoon game day at your house!
EASY WAY TO MAKE FOOTBALL CUPCAKES
White Cake Mix
Brach’s Football Candies
Start by making the cupcakes as directed on the cake mix box. If you have a specific team you’re rooting for, you could always make it them team colors like these cupcakes. We just used a white cake this time, so as to keep the treats neutral.
Use the star-shaped icing tip to fill the top of the cupcake with little green icing stars. This will give the cupcake icing the appearance of grass so you can add your football to the top. We bought already dyed green icing, for the ease of use, but you could always buy white, and dye it yourself with some food coloring.
Add your football candy to the top of the cupcake. If you buy them out of season, you will pay more. But, stock up during the fall months by checking out the candy aisles at Walmart or Target. One bag of the candies will do all twenty-four cupcakes easily. Store the cupcakes in an air-tight container to keep them soft until you’re ready to eat them. That’s all there is to it!
