Easy Football Cupcakes
Prep time: 2 hours
Serves 18 - 20 cupcakes


One box white cake mix
One container of green cake frosting
One tube of white piping for details
Bag of pretzel sticks
Some red fruit leather
Chocolate covered almonds (whole)


Bake your cupcakes according to the box directions in paper liners. Cool completely and frost with the green frosting. Next adding the football field hash marks. Set the chocolate almond on the top center and add the football stitching with the white piped frosting. Cut your fruit leather in long thin triangles. Wrap the wide end of the fruit leather just around the top of the pretzel stick to create the flag. Place on the side of the cupcake.
