Football Cupcakes

Football Cupcakes are the perfect addition to your tailgate feast or game-day party! Your guests will be big fans of these sweet and simple cupcakes topped with chocolate frosting and vanilla frosting "stitching." They’re the perfect celebratory treat for when your team scores a touchdown and are also great for sports-themed birthday parties or other special events.

Shop at Dollar Tree – Here’s What You’ll Need:

  • Yellow Cake Mix (and Ingredients on the Box)
  • Chocolate Frosting
  • Vanilla Frosting
  • 24 Cupcake Liners
  • 2 Plastic Storage Bags (or Piping Bag & Tip)
  • Cupcake Pan
  • Scissors

Easy Step-by-Step Directions:

  1. Gather all required ingredients (see image #1). Fill a cupcake pan with cupcake liners. Prepare the yellow cake mix according to its packaging directions.
  2. Allow the cupcakes to cool completely (see image #2).
  3. Fill a plastic storage bag or piping bag with chocolate frosting and cut a small slit in a corner of the bag or use a piping tip. Slowly apply pressure to the bag and squeeze the frosting onto the top of each cupcake in a zigzag pattern to create each "football's" design.
  4. Fill a separate plastic storage bag with vanilla frosting and cut a smaller slit in a corner of the bag. Slowly apply pressure to the bag and squeeze the vanilla icing to create the "stitching" on top of the chocolate "footballs."
  5. Serve and enjoy... go team!
