Super Peanut Butter Surprise SuperBowl XLI Cupcakes


SuperBowl Sunday....What can I say about this...I'm a Redskins fan...and I love Maryland basketball most of all...however, I must admit that I'llI use any excuse to make cupcakes! I definitely plan to watch the game tonight, but I don't really have a favorite. The only player I can name on either team is Peyton Manning!



This cupcake is from the Cake Doctor's cupcake book. After you make the batter and fill the cupcake liners, you put one Hershey kiss on top and while it bakes it melts straight down into the cupcake so that when you take them out of the oven, you don't see a trace of the hershey kiss!


Then, of course, I got out my "little football people" and the fun began! I made orange and blue frosting and slathered it on the cupcakes...I found the minature Reece's cups at World Market...perfect for the top!


Layla's favorite team is the Colts...but only because she doesn't like bears...but she loves horses. I tried to explain football to her...but you know how dogs are...they can be stubburn when they want to...I just hope she wins!

Have a great game!

Rock on,

CQ

  3. OK....this is going to sound like a really stupid question to all you cupcake pros out there, but how do you frost cupcakes so they look like the ones in the second picture from the top?

  5. Out of curiosity, how would I add those 'translate to' buttons at the top of my blog? I'm specifically interested in the 'Chinese' option as I have many friends in China who read my blog, along with Ruby's foster parents who don't speak or understand a word of English, they just look to see the pictures. Any help or advice would be GREAT!

    Thanks!
