Football cupcakePerfect for a Super Bowl party or after any big game, these football cupcakes won’t be “passed” over. (Sorry, bad punt, uh, pun.)
What You Need: 1 cupcake (baked and cooled); chocolate frosting; white icing and green icing (tinted and in pastry bag with piping tip #3 or use prepackaged colored icing tubes such as those by Wilton or Cake Mate).
How to Make It: Frost cupcake with chocolate icing. You’re actually going to create the look of a football by piping green icing in such a way that it leaves an oval shape in the brown part of the cupcake. (You can “draw” an oval with green or just eyeball it.) Use piping tip to make grass by: scribbling back and forth OR holding tip at 90-degree angle and pulling up OR you can use a pastry bag and metal tip #233 to make the most realistic grass. The pictured cupcake was made using a combination of the easy scribbling and pulling up techniques. Finally, pipe white line with four shorter lines crossing over it in center of cupcake for ball’s stitching.

Super Bowl cupcake
Superbowl Sunday is coming up Feb. 3, 2008, and what better way to celebrate Super Bowl XLII than to serve up football themed cupcakes. Even if your Super Bowl party guests are too busy yelling at the TV screen to appreciate these tiny football fields, at least you’ll have fun making them.
What You Need: 1 cupcake (baked and cooled); white icing; icing tinted green; white or off-white icing for piping lines in a pastry bag with round tip (such as #3) OR premade decorator’s icing in a tube OR just snip the corner off a plastic sandwich bag; chocolate Necco wafer or other round or oval brown candy.
How to Make It: Frost cupcake using green icing. Pipe 2 white lines parallel to one another. Pipe shorter white line perpendicular to lower line. Pipe “5” and “0” to show the 50 yard line. Pipe white “stitching” on candy to make football, and place ball on top of the cupcake.
