It seems the baking world, and the general population is tickled about pumpkin spice season. Meh. I am all about football food and Halloween treats. What can I say? I march to my own drumbeat, and that beat is saying Mini Football Cupcakes.
These cupcake minis are an easy-peasy way to root for your favorite football team (Go Pack Go!) while shoveling delicious miniature chocolate cupcakes into your face. Kids will love them. Football fans will love them. Cupcake lovers will LOVE them. You’ll love them. It’s a win-win. Now, if only you could guarantee your favorite football team wins.
To bake these bite-size beauties you’ll need your favorite chocolate cupcake, chocolate buttercream, and vanilla buttercream recipes. You can also skip the chocolate buttercream and just use vanilla buttercream colored brown, which is what I did. I prefer vanilla buttercream frosting and I am a bit lazy like that.
To pipe your buttercream footballs onto your mini cupcakes you’ll need piping bags, a small star tip, and a small round tip. I used Ateco 12" Disposable Pastry Bags, with a Wilton No. 20 Open Star Tip for the brown football, and a Wilton No. 5 Round Tip for the white football strings.
Tada! You’ve got Mini Football Cupcakes! Now you're truly ready for some football!!
