Football Player Cupcakes take the field on Super Bowl Sunday! We designed our cupcake team using store bought sugar cookie dough for the helmet cookies, and we coated the helmets in sugar to match TEAM COLORS…SWEEEET!
It’s just as easy for you to make them for your own team. Great for tailgate parties, too!
Cut the helmet cookies from store bought sugar cookie dough and bake. After baking and cooling the cookies, frost them in a team color and dip them in a matching color sugar. Pipe stripes or other team details to the helmets.
Next frost cupcakes with flesh color frosting and press a helmet onto each cupcake. Add black pearls for eyes, a red frosting mouth, a dot of frosting for the nose, and licorice lace face guards.
Here’s a tip on making the footballs. Simply roll a TOOTSIE ROLL into a football shape and pipe lines of vanilla frosting for the laces!
Place the cupcakes and footballs on a serving plate and scatter green decorating sugar around the base of each cupcake. Happy Super Bowl Decorating!
