These were easy and fun to make and you can really whip out a bunch of them once you have all your frosting bags ready. Frost your cupcakes with green frosting using tip #233 to make it look like grass.

Next, use your chocolate frosting along with tip #21 and make your little football shape on top of the grass.

Use round tip #3 with white frosting to make the seams on the football.

How to Make Them

  • White frosting, brown icing gel (to make skin color)
  • Black frosting (for mouth, eyes and camouflage)
  • Frosting tip #21 (for helmet), tip #3 (round), tip #47 (ribbon shape) for line on helmet, tip #12 (optional for eyes)
  • A small amount of white fondant for whites of eyes or use white frosting
  • Your choice of frosting for your team’s colors

This requires quite a bit of items but the results are super cute and this would look nice for a cool Super Bowl dessert display.

You will need to add some brown icing gel to your white frosting to get it to look a flesh color.

Next, make the helmet and to to do that use tip #21 and start on the outside and work your way in. Choose whatever color your team is. See More Cupcake Toppers….

Use a bit of white fondant and use a very small end of one of your frosting tips to punch out a hole. For small eyes like these, I like to use tip #12. It was used as a cookie cutter for the fondant eye.

If desired, you could also use your tip #3 to make a round eyeball shape and then a smaller tip like #2 to make the black part of the eye.

Once you have placed the eyes, use tip #3 (with the flesh colored frosting) to make your nose.
Then tip #3 is used for the black part of the eyes, the mouth and camouflage. You could also make this football player mean looking by drawing on some eyebrows!

Lastly, draw on the rest of the helmet (the protective front portion) with tip #3 again. Use tip # 47 which makes the ribbon shape to position your stripe or whatever design is on the helmet.
