Somehow, I've managed to make it through week 5 of the NFL season with a 4-1 record in my fantasy football league. I'm pretty proud of my team (the Rush Puppies), especially considering how poorly the season started last year.
Although I'm not really a fantasy football wizard, I like to think that I am a wizard when it comes to throwing a good party. (I'm so modest, right?)
So, if you're having friends over to watch a game, you might want to try out these cake pops. (I made them for the Super Bowl last year, and I hope to make them again soon.)
I took my inspiration from Bakerella and made some cake pops in the shape of footballs. You can find the basic instructions for making cake pops here.
For these, I used chocolate cake mixed with chocolate icing. Then I shaped them into little footballs and chilled them in the freezer. I melted some chocolate chips and shortening together to dip them in and drew the laces on with white icing. (Tip: the smaller ones held up a bit better, as the weight of the footballs made a few too heavy to stay on the stick.)
They were adorable, and tasty too!
Do you make any fun football-themed desserts?
