A Great Kick-off

20 Sep

With fall season coming upon us quickly, there is nothing that reminds me that fall is here more than football. I always feel that once football season begins, the seasons are changing. Everyone gets settled and watches football on Sundays and Mondays and snuggles up in their blankets. I love this. Normally around this time, I am tired of the heat and want the crisp cool weather that comes along with the fall season. To bring in the new season of football and fall, I thought baking something related to football would be fun!

Football is loved around the nation. Many people gather to watch football, so what better way to get people together for a little gathering!

This is not a hard recipe. To start, you will need the following:

Ingredients:

  • A cooled cupcake (baked from any recipe)
  • Green and white frosting
  • Fruit leather
  • Pretzel stick
  • Chocolate-covered almond

Instructions:

  1. Frost a cooled cupcake (baked from your favorite recipe) with green frosting, then mark the yard lines with white decorators’ gel.
  2. For a pennant, wrap a fruit leather triangle around a pretzel stick and plant it in the field as shown.
  3. Set a chocolate-covered almond or brown almond M&M football topped with white decorators’ gel laces on the field, and you’re sure to score points with your favorite sports fans.

This could also be used for little kids birthday parties too, since it looks great but is not too hard to make!

Now just watch the football game or celebrate. Enjoy!
