Red Velvet Super Bowl Cupcakes, Part 1: The Challenge

Last year for the Super Bowl, I tried my hand at decorated cupcakes for the first time EVER and wound up with these little beauties:

Fun to make and fun to eat! A few friends of mine even pitched in to help decorate. Can you tell which team I was rooting for?

This year, I decided to make Red Velvet Cupcakes topped with Cream Cheese Frosting and some Blue and Silver Sprinkles... The color scheme is the decoration — works for both teams!

Better yet, I turned these cupcakes into a competition. TWO recipes, TWO dozen red velvet cupcakes, and ONE Young Idealistic Baker original recipe.

This year, Cupcake Bowl > Super Bowl.

Those of you that are Puppy Bowl fans can decide where that fits into the equation.

Today and tomorrow, I'll have plentiful taste testers conduct blind tastes of both cupcakes and then I'll announce the winner and recipes in another post.

I'm rooting for my recipe (duh!) and the Patriots today!! Lets go Team(s)!

Happy Super Bowl Day!!
