Football cupcakes with gingerbread cookie football toppers
Photo by: Mini Baker

I may be the only person in the greater Baltimore area who is indifferent to the fact the Ravens are playing in the Super Bowl (sorry, local peeps!!), but there is one thing that my football fan friends and I can agree on – these cupcakes are really flippin’ cute. : ) Christa of Mini Baker came up with this idea – the “grass” is shredded coconut that’s been colored with food coloring; the football is a gingerbread cookie; and the cupcakes and frosting are both made from scratch using simple, delicious recipes.

For the cupcake, frosting and cookie recipes, and even a beautifully-shot video showing how to make these football themed cupcakes, visit Mini Baker.

    These are so cute! I can't believe we are both Baltimore girls! Next week, I am devoting the week to the football fans, newbie fans, and no-so-much fans! :) perhaps I can't make you a fan but perhaps look at the whole thing in a new light? Love the cupcake toppers!

      You can certainly try! ; ) I'm pretty set in my ways, although I do have a soft spot for Maryland basketball. I don't watch the games anymore, but I still care. That's about as close as it gets for me, LOL!

      Yes! The coconut 'grass' is what really puts it over the top, I think! : )
