Super Bowl Sunday is a sacred holiday in our house. Second only the the BSC National Championship game. Boo Boo and I made these lovely Pinterest inspired cupcakes for the big day. I used my very favorite easy and delicious cupcake recipe from RecipeGirl and found a wonderful chocolate frosting on Allrecipes.
Makes 36 cupcakes
1 box yellow cake mix
1 c all-purpose flour
1 c sugar
3/4 t salt
1 1/3 c water
2 T oil
1 1/2 t vanilla extract
1 c vanilla yogurt
4 egg whites
Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Line cupcake tins with liners of your choice.
Whisk together first 4 ingredients in a large bowl. Add remaining ingredients and beat with a mixer for 2 minutes ( no longer or your cupcakes will be tough)
Fill prepared cupcake tins 3/4 full (I use an ice cream scoop). Bake for 18 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
Cool and frost.
Double recipe to frost 36 cupcakes
*** I used 8 T butter and 4 T shortening so the frosting would set up well.
For decorations, I used a #21 tip for chocolate frosting and #3 tip for football laces.
