Are you ready for some football?

We are football fans in this house. We enjoy going to the AF football games and catching scores of other college and pro teams. So when my husband signed me up to make a dessert for our tailgate cookout, I was so excited to be creative.

I made chocolate cupcakes and filled them with vanilla buttercream. I tinted vanilla buttercream to make skin color (using copper) and royal blue for the helmet.

Then I tinted vanilla buttercream kelley green for the grass and royal blue for the sky…

Then I used vanilla buttercream and swirled the cupcake. I sprayed it with Wilton icing spray in blue.
I had so much fun making these. They were a hit at the tailgate too. Happy Football Season!
