  • Author: Linda


Football Cupcakes are the perfect dessert for Super Bowl parties, football game day, or a themed football birthday party!


  • One dozen of your favorite chocolate cupcakes, or this recipe minus the frosting
  • 1 stick butter, softened
  • 2 cups confectioners’ sugar
  • 23 tbsp milk
  • ¼ tsp green fel good coloring
  • 56 oz. brown/chocolate fondant
  • White decorating frosting


  • Begin by making your “grass” buttercream. With an electric mixer, add butter, confectioners’ sugar and milk. Beat on low, gradually increasing it to high.
  • Once the ingredients are well-combined and smooth, add green gel food coloring and mix until completely tinted.
  • Assemble your frosting bag so that it has Wilton tip #233 and scoop your buttercream frosting into it.
  • Frost each cupcake so that it looks like grass.
  • Separate your brown fondant into 12 1-inch spheres. Mold them so that they have football shapes.
  • With your white decorating frosting, pipe out the football’s “grip/laces” on each fondant piece.
  • Place one football fondant piece on each cupcake. Serve and enjoy!
