We have fun neighborhood friends who throw a great football-themed party every year at the beginning of the NFL season. I always want to bring something fun and edible, but I sometimes struggle to make something creative. This year, I am pretty sure these football field mini cupcakes were touchdown dance worthy. They are perfect for Super Bowl Parties! Scroll to the bottom and watch the video to see how easy these are to make.
Football Field Mini Cupcakes
Serves 24 people.
1 box gluten free cake mix
Easy Buttercream Frosting
1/2 c shortening
1/2 c butter softened
1 t vanilla extract
4 c powdered sugar approximately
2 T milk
1/2 t kelly green food dye approximately
1/2 c rainbow sprinkles
Make mini cupcakes as directed on the box. Let cool.
Prepare buttercream frosting – whip the shortening and butter together. Add vanilla. Add powdered sugar. Add milk until it’s the right consistency. You want MEDIUM consistency frosting so that your grass stands up when you pipe it.
Add Kelly Green colored food dye to 1/2 the batch of frosting until it is a bright, fun green.
Frost enough cupcakes (about 26) to line the edges of your field with white frosting and then dip in rainbow sprinkles.
Fill decorator bag 1/2 full with kelly green frosting. Add decorator tip 233. Frost each mini cupcake with grass! You will need about 28 mini cupcakes decorated green.
Make your field! Add some end goals. Enjoy your party!
