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.
