Football Cupcakes {2}

From the Kitchen of Darby HawleySince the Superbowl is right around the corner, this week I want to tease you with a bunch of recipes that scream football snack and make you salivate.  Have I peaked your interest? 
Since chocolate is the most important food group, let’s start there.  These are some fabulously fun cupcakes that will make all your guests think you’re a real fancy pants, but really they’re SO simple to make.DSC_0614-2Step 1: Bake cupcakes and let them cool off to room temperature.  You can make cupcakes from scratch or from a mix.  I choose funfetti for a party.  Duh, who doesn’t love funfetti cupcakes?!DSC_0579
Step 2: Once the cupcakes are cooled, take a star icing tip and fill your icing cone with chocolate frosting.  Squeeze the icing cone in a zig-zag motion for each cupcake.  Again the icing can be from scratch, though I recommend a buttercream icing if you make it from scratch so that it holds the shape, or from a can.  This will require more icing than you probably anticipate.  I had to send the Mr back to the store on an emergency trip for more icing because I ran out right before our guests came over last year.DSC_0590
Step 3: I purchased some Wilton’s Ready-to-Use white decorating icing.  You can get this at most grocery stores or craft stores.  The awesome thing about this icing is that icing tips will screw right onto the bottle. So all you have to do is draw some laces on your footballs.Wilton Icing
How easy was that?! 
There you have it: festive and delicious football cupcakes :-)  Not only would these be great for a football game, but also a boy baby shower, or a young little boy’s birthday party.  See the possibilities are endless!DSC_0613DSC_0614-2
