ready for some football? nope, me either… how about cupcakes?

Love, the fact that the year I could care less about the Super Bowl, I get orders for zillions ok, hundreds of mixed dozen cupcakes. Maybe it is where I live too many team jumpers here in the South. Who do I pull for? Always have, always will Bucs and the Saints. Anyhoo, here’s to the mixed dozen for those who couldn’t decide who to pull for! Have fun.

Super Bowl Sunday

This year is a little different, I am not sure who is playing. I think it is the Green Bay Packers ans the Steelers? Hoping that is right. I have my cupcake ideas ready to go, Edible Football Toppers; Gold & Black Frosting and Green, for the other team.  I have to pull for the Steelers for a few reasons first off, a good friend, Jack’s Aunt Nette LOVES them, I like there color combo (APP STATE FAN) and I just like the city they come from much better. My reasons, yes they are lame, but who cares? I don’t.

Looking for some yummy Super Bowl Nibles? HERE is what I did last year! When I had the Saints to pull for.
