I love making cupcakes and baking. Although I love to cook, I can have more fun while baking with my friends and enjoying the time together. Besides my sandwiches, I am planning on making themed cupcakes with my friends for the Superbowl. I was not quite sure how I wanted to decorate them, so I started to look online for ideas.

I found this great site that shows top ideas for how to decorate cupcakes for the Superbowl. Some ideas are better than others, but no matter what, they have a different idea for everyone. (Cupcakerecipes.com)

1.  Frost cupcakes with team colors.

The nice thing about this idea is that it is simple and quick. All you need to buy is food coloring and frosting.

2.  Mini football helmets.

This idea is also very simple. Mini football helmets can be picked up at most party stores and are very inexpensive.

3.  Football shaped toothpicks.

This idea requires a bit more work. The toothpicks are easy to find, but the time consuming part is printing off footballs from the Internet and taping them onto the toothpicks.

4.  Draw football shapes on each cupcake.

This idea requires decorating frosting or the frosting gel. Make sure someone does this who has a little creative ability, so the footballs actually look like footballs.

5.  Bake cupcakes in the shape of a football.

This requires finding a cupcake mold that is football shaped. If you are only making the cupcakes for the Superbowl, it is probably not worth buying the mold because it will be around $10.

6.  Cut round cupcakes into football shapes.

This requires a little more skill. You have to figure out a way to cut them in football shapes and still make them look presentable. I have tried to do this with cupcakes before for my friend’s birthday and it did not work. You will just have to see if you can make it look good.

7.  Make goal posts out of Popsicles sticks.

This idea is fun. Popsicle sticks are cheap and it won’t take a lot of time.

8.  M&M Super Bowl cupcakes.

You can order special m&m’s for the Superbowl in the colors of the teams.

9.  Brown M&M footballs.

This idea is used to make shapes out of the m&m’s to put on the cupcakes.

10.  One letter per cupcake team cheer.

This letter can be put on the cupcake with frosting, m&m’s or any other candy. It makes the cupcakes colorful and festive, but once they start getting eaten up, your guests may be a little confused.lol

I hope this ideas helped, and enjoy making your desserts for the Superbowl.
