With Labor Day behind us, fall is just around the corner. Time to bring on the mums, pumpkin flavored baked goods, cinnamon scented candles and of course, football! The season officially kicked off last night, however our first home game for the Buffalo Bills is this Sunday. My husband and I have season tickets, so we spend a lot of Sundays in the fall grilling hot dogs in a parking lot, playing corn hole, drinking beer and freezing our butts off while we watch football. Even though our team usually loses more than we win, we still have a blast going to games.
So in honor of the kickoff to football season, I threw together some football cupcakes. These cupcakes may look complicated, but they are actually very simple to make. You’ll need a 2 pastry bags, one fitted with a star tip, and one fitted with a small round tip. (I used a Wilton #2.) Use your favorite cupcakes recipe, but if you need a good chocolate frosting recipe, I’ve included my favorite. Since you only need a small amount of vanilla frosting, I set aside a small amount of frosting before adding the cocoa, so I don’t have to make 2 separate batches.
