New York Giants Cupcakes

5 years ago

These New York Giants tailgating cupcakes were so fun to make, and were the perfect addition to tailgating last month, but are also perfect for this weekend's Giants game-day playoff parties!

I usually use my Wilton pastry bags and tips to decorate, but I was crunched for time so I tried the Betty Crocker Easy Flow Icing Blue, which comes with four different tips. It was awesome -- great control, good flow and zero mess!

To make these, I took a white cake mix, prepared it according to the box directions, and added blue food coloring to it. I used the blue color from the Wilton icing color kit

 

While they were baking I practiced drawing the logo on a piece of paper with a pen and then using the easy flow icing, I practiced several time on a paper towel.

Once the cupcakes are completely cool, frost them with a white icing -- I used a vanilla flavored whipped icing. Then draw the logo on the cupcake. The smoother the frosting is, the easier it becomes to write on the cupcakes. I wanted them to have a homemade feel, so I deliberatly used a regular butter knife, and didn't smooth it completely.

 
To transport them. I used a disposable broiler pan -- easy clean up and didn't need to worry about having to take it back home on the train.
