Gameday Cupcakes

If you didn't get to travel to a BCS bowl game, you are watching some football on TV this week and just might be in the mood for some cute cupcakes.  Bowl season is a perfect season for these confections  because elaborate cupcakes like these are a little more comfortable at a home party than being transported with the tailgate gear.
