Tips to Make This Fun Football Dessert Idea
When I’m baking or cooking for a large crowd or event, I like to plan out what I can prepare ahead of time to make the “day of” easier. I want to enjoy in the fun, too! Here are a few ways you can prep this fun cupcake idea ahead of time.
- Bake the cupcakes the night before.
- Mold all of the chocolate pieces while watching your favorite show (or watching the kids clean their room which is what I did this morning).
- Use leftover candies to mold little chocolate footballs for the dessert table or as a fun addition to the kid’s plates.
- If you can find it, use premade cookie icing (like this) for the white laces. Otherwise, you’ll need white frosting, a piping bag, and a #3 tip.
