My sons school has a yearly 'Open House'
this includes a raffle and bake sale
I always like to try and make something for the bake sale
This year, I loved what I cake up with!
Start with a box cake mix and make some cupcakes.
I let my cupcakes cool completely overnight.
The other supplies you'll need are
2 dozen paper cups (mine have footballs on them)
white and chocolate frosting
I started by putting one cupcake (without its wrapper)
at the bottom of each cup.
Then I started with the layers.
The first to go in is a dab of chocolate frosting on each one.
I hadn't originally thought of adding chocolate chips.
But I had half a bag in my pantry
and I thought they'd be a perfect addition!
I was right.
When topping everything off with the white frosting,
I did put on a Wilton tip.
I thought it gave everything a little bit fancier look.
And since we're in Husker country
Everyone here is crazy about Nebraska football..
So I added red sprinkles to each cup.
Aren't they pretty?
Then all the cups when into the treat bags.
My treat bags came with twist ties.
Here are some pictures showing how I attached the forks.
This made it alot easier when is came to attaching the ribbon!
I finished everything off with some red ribbon!
I LOVE the finished product!!!
These sold out at our bake sale for $2 a piece!
You could do this idea for anything.
Change the cup for whichever theme you're going after!
Add different colored sprinkles and ribbons for whichever team your rooting for.
This might be one of my favorite project to date!
Colton wanted his picture in front of the 'football cakes'
Thanks so much for stopping by on this day!
I really appreciate it!
