Football Shaped Cupcakes

This recipe for football-shaped cupcakes is a good recipe to keep in your repertoire for Super Bowl parties, high school football rallies, and even Pop Warner football team parties. All you need are a few basic cupcake ingredients and a steady hand. Here's how to make your own football cupcakes:


  • 1 package vanilla cupcake  mix
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 3 eggs
  • Baking cups
  • 1 container (16 oz.) chocolate frosting
  • 1 ½ cups white chocolate chips
  • Knife


Bake the cupcakes according to the package directions. Once they are done baking and have cooled, carefully peel off the baking cups. Use a very sharp knife to cut your cupcakes into (oval) football shapes. Dust off any crumbs with a pastry brush, then frost them with the chocolate frosting.

Melt the white chocolate chips in the microwave, then spoon them into a ziplock bag. Cut a small hole in the corner of the bag. Carefully pipe the white icing onto the football-shaped cupcake to make it look like football laces.
