  • Before you start decorating, ensure that all of your cupcakes are cool to the touch. It's easiest if you cool them on a wire rack. 
  • Begin by making your buttercream "grass" frosting. With an electric mixer, add butter, confectioners’ sugar and milk, beating on low, gradually increasing it to high speed.
  • Once the ingredients are well-combined and smooth, add your green gel food coloring and mix until completely tinted and well mixed.
  • Assemble your frosting bag so that it has Wilton tip #233 and scoop your buttercream frosting into it.
  • Frost each cupcake gently so that it looks like grass.
  • Separate your chocolate fondant into twelve one-inch spheres. Mold them so that they have football shapes.
  • With your white decorating frosting, pipe out the football’s "laces" on each fondant piece.
  • Place one football fondant piece on each cupcake. Serve and enjoy!
