Tuesday Toppers: Football Cupcake

Well it's football season again and depending on how you look at it, this could be a good thing or a bad thing.:D Fortunately I've grown fond of football, or at least I can tolerate it now, lol. And of course with football season comes football parties and tailgating, both great excuses to make cupcakes! So this week I'm going to show you how to make the football cupcakes that will make you the MVP of the party. Here's what you will need to make one:

footbal9

-Fondant smoother
-Knife
-Paint brush and water
-Redish-brown and white fondant

footbal8

-take a 1" ball of the brown fondant and flatten slightly with the fondant smoother.

footbal7

-Pinch both sides to form almost a diamond.

footbal6

-Round off the top and bottom edges with the fondant smoother and pinch ends to define them more.

footbal5


footbal4

-Take the white fondant and form it into a thin rope (if I were going to make a lot of these, I would probably either use royal icing for the stitching or make sure i had a extruder gun!)

footbal3

-Cut a 1" piece and 8-1/4" pieces.

footbal2

-Attach the long piece first with a little water.

football1

-Then evenly divide the short pieces along the longer piece attaching them with a small amount of water. (ok so i only used 7 of them because they would have been too crowded, but if you want to be completely accurate you need to use all eight of them :)

Your now ready for kickoff!

  3. I am new to your blog! Just browsing around. I love your pumpkin toppers, I made some similar about a year ago for a Harry Potter party I was throwing.

    I could have used these football instructions around Superbowl (or what I really watch, Puppybowl)! I made the footballs, but using piped icing for the lines. Wasn't as clean and precise looking as yours. Nice work!
