Whats the best thing about a Superbowl party? The food! Last year I made these Football Cupcakes for a Superbowl Party and they were a touchdown! These cupcakes only require a few ingredients, are fun to make and turn out super professional!
STEP 1: CUPCAKES
Bake chocolate cupcakes as directed. (I didnt want the extra work, so I just used the box kind the chocolate fudgy and moist YUM!)
STEP 2: TURF GRASS
1 cup shredded coconut
1 tsp. water
green food coloring
Dyeing shredded coconut is an easy way to get the perfect grassy look. **Note: I prefer Tropical Traditions Shredded Coconut because it is a lot smaller than large flakes and doesnt bulk up the top of the cupcakes.
In a zipper sandwich bag, mix all ingredients until well blended. I ended up repeating this process 3 times, using a total of 3 tsp. water and 8 drops of food coloring. (Honestly, it just depends on how dark you want the grass. Take it slow, and see how much you need.
STEP 3: FOOTBALLS
handful of chocolate covered almonds
handful of white frosting or white candy melts
Fill a zipper sandwich bag with the warm melted white candy or white frosting. (I used white frosting because I didnt have candy melts, but I think candy melts would stick better and have a better appearance.) Snip off the smallest bit of corner on a zipper sandwich bag and pipe it on to the almonds. Make a short center line, crossed with three perpendicular lines and one line at each end for the football stitching. Repeat. Set aside and let dry.
STEP 4: PREPARING THE FIELD
(1) Frost 1/3 of batch of cupcakes with chocolate frosting. I put the frosting in a zipper sandwich bag (yes, again!) and piped it back and forth on the top. I found I liked the look of this better, and the coconut stayed well in the crevices.
(2) Press the footballs lightly into the frosting so they stick to it, but arent buried. I placed mine off-center and a bit tilted.
(3) Drizzle your green shredded coconut grass on the top. If you choose to make field lines, just use the remaining white melt (may need to re-heat) or white frosting and draw lines across the top!
(4) Repeat this process on the next 1/3 of the cupcakes and finally on the last 1/3 of the cupcakes. ** Note: I say to only decorate 1/3 of the cupcakes at a time because I found that the cupcakes didnt hold the grass as well when the frosting had time to harden and dry. So, my advice is do it in a rotation process.
There you have it! A basic and fun recipe for game day! Go team!
