Cake Balls with Team Spirit

You have time!  Whip up these cake balls for your opening game weekend.  A little spirited surprise when you take a bite.  Below is the recipe from,

**1 box Duncan Hines cake mix (as well as ingredients for baking the cake)
**1 can Duncan Hines cream cheese frosting
1 package Chocolate almond bark
Shortening may be used to thin the almond bark coating
Food coloring
**Use a light colored cake mix as well as frosting if you plan on dying the batter. If not, my favorite is red velvet with cream cheese frosting. I've also done chocolate cake with a chocolate fudge icing (amazing) so its up to you!
1. Make cake batter according to instructions on box

2. Separate batter into two bowls (or more depending on how many colors you want)

3. Add food coloring to each

4. Bake in separate pans

5. Allow cakes to cool, then crumble each into separate bowls.

6. Take half the frosting (assuming only two colors) and mix into crumbled cake until well blended- do the same for other color.

7. Take a little bit of cake from each bowl (I found this was easiest using a tablespoon) and roll into a ball and place on wax paper.

8. After all the batter is used, place into refrigerator while you melt the almond bark in a bowl in the microwave (or a double boiler). *If your almost bark is too thick, you may use shortening (by the T) to thin it out.

9. Using a fork or a spoon, dip each cake ball into the chocolate, shake off the excess, and place on wax paper to dry.

Happy Gameday

Snack on the Stadium

With bowl week upon us, I felt it "important" to re-publish October's Snack Stadiums post.  Snack Stadiums strike me as the uber-appropriate addition to a holiday gameday party.  Whip one up in the next couple weeks or start planning for a Super Bowl Snack Stadium.  Enjoy!

You are going to love this gallery of football stadiums made of  enough food for the entire party.  Holy Taco gives you the instructions to  create this beauty, complete with the dip field.  Click here for the instructions.

Now this is the time I should let you know that there is an entire website  dedicated to these pieces of edible art/architecture/engineering feat.  I am not making this up!   Here's what you'll see over there:

The Old Try

The regular season is over and it's time to start thinking about the season (aka bowl season).  Don't forget to check out past Gameday Style posts for more great gift ideas.
First up, is The Old Try.  I purchased this print a few months ago for my home that's trying hard to raise two gentlemen...

The Old Try has some Gameday Style in a subtle, fun and classy way.  Subtle, because you may not know what some of these designs are referring to, unless you're a devoted fan of one of these Southern schools.
