What do you do when your husband asks for some cupcakes to take to work for a football kickoff party the next day at work? You work with what you have to give your cupcakes some spirit. In my case I just happened to have a spring mix of Wilton sugar crystals and was able sprinkle some purple and gold (Go Vikings!) over the top.
Since we live in a border town I was kind enough to create a few for the enemy Packers fans. I was told by one such fan that these might have helped put them over the top this year. After enjoying this one he made the mistake of trying a purple and gold cupcake to see if he was missing anything. He told me it didn’t sit so well.
