How to Make Football Themed Cupcakes

Football season is on its way and we’ve got a dessert that you can create for your favorite team.

Let’s make football inspired cupcakes!

Football Cupcakes

Preheat oven your 350°F.

Cream the 1 stick of butter and 1 cup sugar until fluffy. Beat in 4 eggs, one at a time.

In a separate bowl, mix 1 and 1/2 cups flour, 1/2 cup cocoa powder, and 1 teaspoon baking soda.

Alternate mixing half of the dry ingredients and 1 cup buttermilk into the egg mixture.

Line the bottom of a 9×13 glass dish with parchment paper, and grease. Pour in batter, and bake for 22-25 minutes.

Cool completely, and with a 2-3 inch cookie cutter or biscuit cutter, cut 12 circles into the cake.

For the filling, mix 7 ounces marshmallow fluff, 1 stick butter, 1/2 cup powdered sugar, and 1 teaspoon vanilla. Set a little aside, and color the rest in your team’s color.

For the frosting, bring 1 cup heavy cream and  4 tablespoon sugar to a boil, and pour over 6 ounces chocolate chips and butter.

Stir until there are no longer lumps.

Cut each cake in half horizontally, and scoop out a little cake out of each side. Fill, and stack the cake with the scooped sides in the middle.

Spread the frosting over the top and sides of each cake. Let dry, flip, and cover the bottom with frosting.

Pipe a football design on the top of the cake with the filling you set aside.
