#footballsunday 2.0 : Seahawks "12" Fondant Cupcake Toppers

I hate the fact that commentators refer to Russel Wilson as a "rookie quarter back" and keep reminding us that he is a third round pick. Come on! He won the Superbowl! As I was telling my husband, the commentators are like brown parents who will always remind you of that one thing that you did wrong, for the rest of your life!

Anyways, enough with the ranting...We won our first home opener against the Greenbay Packers (one down, lots more to go!). This weeks treat was vanilla bean cupcakes with vanilla bean frosting (recipes coming soon!) with "12" fondant toppers.

I had A LOT of leftover fondant from a baking project (that's a story for another day). And it happened to be blue, white and green!

Enough chit chat...here's the details. This are super easy to make, I had the cupcakes in the oven, the frosting running on the kitchen aid and I cut these out while watching the game. Not a fan of fondant?

Not a fan of fondant? Well there are other treats that you can make for game day, check them out here.
Seahawks "12" Fondant Cupcake Toppers

blue, green and white fondant
fondant roller with 1/16th inch markers
circle cookie cutter
"1" and "2" cookie cutter
wax paper
plastic mat (for rolling)

1. Roll out about a 1/4 cup of blue fondant (using smaller amounts of fondant helps prevent drying out and cracking). Using the circle cookie cutter, cut out circles and transfer to a sheet of wax paper. Repeat for half the number of cupcakes you will be decorating.
2. Do step (1) using the the green fondant this time.
3. Now roll out white fondant use the "1" and "2" cookie cutters to cut out your "12"s, cut out enough for your circles. Immediately transfer the "12"s on to the circles nd press down lightly to get them to stick to the circles.
4. While your cupcakes cool, allow the toppers to dry out a little bit. Once you have frosted your cupcakes, add the toppers and you are ready to watch the game!

(If you wish to store the toppers for future use, allow them to dry over night, then store them in an airtight container, separating them using wax paper.)

Go Hawks!
