12th Man Cupcakes

Well the Superbowl is over, it was a great game from the screaming and yelling in my living room last night. Living in Seattle it was a huge deal we made it there 2 years in a row! Me not being a football girl and a non bandwagon hopper it wasn't a big thing for me. BUT, the charity I work for Birthday Dreams had a 15 y/o homeless girl having a Seahawks themed party.  I made the 12th man treats for Cole's class on Friday and thought I could do that on top of a cupcake also!

WELL my first idea was to make a 12 and do the M&M cake (I made previously for this charity) done in the Seahawk colors!  BUT my order of M&Ms from Amazon arrived an hour before the game which of course was hours after the cake was due.  So I went to plan B Sunday AM.  I got up super early and made the treats and then cupcakes!


What you need:
Candy Melts - Dark Blue
Candy Melts - Green
Candy Melts - White
Vanilla Wafers - I used Minis
Food Writer Black
Rice Krispy Treats
Cupcakes (Chocolate Cupcakes were requested)
Frosting (I used my Sturdy Buttercream)

I used the mini wafers again since they needed to fit on cupcakes. I made a double batch of rice krispy treats,I cut them into rectangles to be the bodies. I melted my Candy Melts and dipped the treats, just about 2/3 of the treat. I used my fondant spreader to make the chocolate smooth for the shirts. I took a food writer and make the face on the mini wafers. I melted some white candy melts and made the 12 on the blue and green to be the shirts. The second time I made them I used a piping bag with my small top to write the 12 it was a lot cleaner this time. I then put a dollop of white chocolate on the un-dipped part of the treat to attach the face. I made a few Flags and square's with the 12 on it too.

I frosted my cupcakes and added the 12th men and flags to them and loaded them up into a clear cupcake containers (I bought mine on Amazon).  I love these containers they make it so easy to deliver cupcakes. They stay nice without being destroyed in the travel.
