One of the best things about living in Milwaukee is that we get to watch our favorite team, the Green Bay Packers, play football during the fall and winter months. We get together with family and friends and have Packer parties with great food and exciting games to watch on television.
If you are looking for a special treat to make for your next Green Bay Packer party, how about making a green and gold cake or cupcakes? Cake and cupcakes are easy to make and are a fun treat for football fans. Below are a few ideas and suggestions to get you started.
First of all, you can use any cake mix and icing that you want. White icing can be turned into green or gold icing with food coloring, and brown icing can be used to make a football cake. Cakes and cupcakes can be made in football shapes using baking pans shaped as footballs, or a typical sheet cake can be made and decorated in Green Bay colors.
