Updated Dec 16, 2011

Ingredients

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F (325°F for dark or nonstick pans). Place paper baking cup in each of 24 regular-size muffin pans.
  • 2
    Make and bake cake as directed on box for 24 cupcakes. Cool in pans 10 minutes; remove from pans to cooling racks. Cool completely, about 30 minutes.
  • 3
    To create your favorite team colors, divide 3/4 cup frosting between two small bowls. Add desired food color to each bowl, and stir until thoroughly blended. Spread frosting over cupcakes; sprinkle with stars. For footballs, pipe laces on almonds with decorator frosting. Cut each fruit snack into 6 triangles. Wrap each triangle around one end of each pretzel for flag. Decorate each cupcake with a football and flag. Store loosely covered.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    If you have only one pan and a recipe calls for more cupcakes than your pan will make, cover and refrigerate the rest of the batter while baking the first batch. Cool the pan about 15 minutes, then bake the rest of the batter, adding 1 to 2 minutes to the bake time.
