Super Bowl Cupcakes!

These cupcakes were a big hit at last year's super bowl party. It takes a little time to decorate them all, but with a friend's help or an open afternoon, they are the perfect treat to get the party started!

 Quick Gold Cake - Fannie Farmer

 These cupcakes turn out with the perfect big, rounded muffin tops! This is my favorite.

2 1/4  cups cake flour
3 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
1 1/4 c. sugar
1/2 cup vegetable oil
2 tsp. vanilla
1 c. milk
2 egg

* This recipe will also make two 8-inch round cakes.
1. Mix the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar in a bowl
2. Stir in the oil and milk and beat for 2 minutes
3. Add the eggs and vanilla and beat for another 2 minutes
4. Pour into paper cups or cake pans and bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes or until knife ( or toothpick) inserted comes out clean as a whistle!
5. Cool in the pan for a few minutes and then turn out onto a cooling rack.

For the Frosting:

My husband's favorite Powdered SugarFrosting

2 1/2 cups powdered sugar
3 tablespoon butter
1 egg white
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon milk
4 tablespoon flour

Cream the butter, powdered sugar, egg and vanilla. Add the salt and flour, mix. Add the milk and mix on high until thoroughly whipped.

For Chocolate:  Add 2 heaping teaspoons of cocoa to frosting

Decorating Time

Make a batch of green frosting and chocolate, and save a scoop out of each to leave plain for the writing on the cupcakes!

Frost half green, and half chocolate. For the green ones, use chocolate covered almonds for the footballs. Add lines for the laces on the ball and lines on the field for the yard lines. Easy as that! For the chocolate cupcakes, just add laces and they look like footballs! Add sprinkles if you want in your favorite team's colors!

TIP: If you don't have a frosting bag and tip, just use a sandwhich bag and cut a small opening at one of the corners! My mom taught me that one :)


  1. Alli, I was planning to ask your permission to make these for our SuperBowl party. I guess I'll take this post as a "yes." By the way, this is a super cute web site! Love you.

  2. Yay! My first commment! Haha, of course you can, I love how they turned out. I was thinking of making them again too. But, I think I am going to do a giant football shaped sheet cake. It would be easy enough, just bake a sheet cake, cut the corners to shape of a football, frost and done!

  3. very cute, look yummy too.
    I especially like the chocolate looking ones.
