These cupcakes were requested for a birthday gift. I was hesitant to make them because I make all my cupcakes from scratch but the coconut pecan frosting I used on these is store bought. It’s too much work to make the frosting and the store bought tastes great. The cupcakes and chocolate frosting is made from scratch.
These chocolate cupcakes are inspired by the Chicago Bears. The toppers are handmade but I am sure you can tell that. I used dark blue vanilla candy melts to make the background squares and melted orange candy melts to draw the C design. The footballs are gummy pieces I found in the baking aisle in Walmart.
This was my 1st time doing a cupcake grooms cake. I was hesitant to do it but it came out nicely. It consists of chocolate and vanilla cupcakes. I used a plastic mold to melt candy wafers to make the toppers. The cake is all chocolate.
