Easy Football Cupcakes

Drew turned six last week, and we had an indoor flag football/soccer birthday party at a local indoor sports complex.  I think Drew has had a sports themed birthday party 5 out of the 6 years!  It’s just who he is so we go with it!
I shamefully happily did not have to do much in the creative department for this party, but I did make the cupcakes, as I always like to do.

I frosted half of the cupcakes in green icing, and used the same trick from last year with a fork to make it look like grass/turf.  I found the edible footballs at Party City.  The other half are chocolate frosted with vanilla iced laces.  I just placed the icing in a ziploc bag and cut the tip at an angle and added the laces.
Just the right little homemade touch for the birthday party!  These would be so easy to make for your next tailgate too!
I still can’t believe this guy turned six, started kindergarten, is almost 50lbs, is 4 feet tall, and now (after a roller skating accident) has his first two loose teeth!  Here’s to a great year 6!
