Steelers!

This is an order that I made for my nephew's 11th birthday. His mom (my sister) told me that he wanted football themed cupcakes and his favorite team is the Steelers.

First let me say that I REALLY enjoyed creating these cupcakes. The first reason being that I went to culinary school in Pittsburgh and the second reason being that's where I met my hubby! While making these cupcakes, I reminisced about my time at PCI Le Cordon Bleu (which has subsequently closed their doors in Pittsburgh) and all of the good times that I had there. I had never lived in a city that was home to an NFL team before and the excitement that the fans brought to downtown Pittsburgh (where my dorm was) on game day was beyond words. Now even though I'm not a Steelers fan (#CowboysNation),the city that the Steelers represent will ALWAYS hold a very special place in my heart.

Now on to the cupcakes:

The order consisted of 12 Cookies N' Cream and 12 Chocolate cupcakes with an assortment of fondant toppers (footballs, Steelers logos, and jerseys), a few Steelers picks and some black and gold sprinkles that I found at the cake supplies store. I also found some really neat football liners to tie in the theme.


 
 
I hope that he enjoyed them.
 
As always thanks for stopping by and contact for orders!
