In honor of this years Super Bowl, I made some football shaped, and decorated, cupcakes.  During the process of making these, they really didn't seem like they would shape out right, but they did!  I'm quite pleased with the outcome.

Step 1: What you Need

Picture of What you Need
Ingredients:
  1. Cupcake Mix of any flavor (you can make your own if you are talented in the kitchen)
  2. Chocolate Frosting (or take your favorite frosting and make it brown)
  3. White Decorating Frosting (I used the canned one shown, which was fun, but difficult to control)

Supplies:
  1. Cupcake Tin
  2. Aluminum Foil
  3. Cupcake Liners
  4. Big Spoon

Step 2: Prepare your Liners

We are going to shape our liners so they are more like footballs.

  1. Fold up the sides a bit so the bottom of the liner is now oblong. (Picture 2 and 3)

  2. Now fold the sides in so that the top of the liner will be more flat, you will notice after step one that it now fans out too much.  I did 2 folds on each side to keep it all even.  (Pictures 4-7)
