Monday Night Football!!

Hubby and I play in a Beirut league on Monday nights. Yes, we play a drinking game in a league on a work night – we’re crazy people! The best part is that we get to watch Monday Night Football which is awesome!

Tonight, the Patriots are playing in the Jungle (Cincinnati). Being Bengals fans living in Boston is tough, and tonight is going to be really tough. We are going fully decked out in our Bengals jerseys and we’ll be obnoxious fans. It’s going to be great.

Anyways, after each week of play, we get Totally Biased Power Rankings. A quote from last week from the power ranking man is: “the best way to get the #1 spot is to make me food” Do you think these cupcakes will get us a first place ranking when the ranking-guy is a huge Pats fan?!? I think we’ve got a great chance of it.

I didn’t have much time to bake since we got back from the Cape at around 8PM last night, so I used the diet coke method. For the orange cupcakes, I used diet orange soda with vanilla cake. For the frosting I mixed cream cheese frosting with 1 pkg sugar free orange jello. Then I put black coloring in it. For the chocolate ones, I used the triple chocolate cake mix (the one that says Hershey’s) and frosted them with vanilla frosting with orange coloring. I topped with various orange and black sprinkles and orange M&Ms.

Since I used the diet coke method: 1 box cake mix + 12 oz diet soda + 1 egg (optional), these are 1 pt mini-cupcakes or 2 pt regular cupcakes (without frosting).

    M&Ms were an inspired idea! And honestly, I think 3 layers was a better size. 5 layers is just too much as I ended up splitting the layers in half when I served it because they were just so big.

    Thank you for the post-back!

    This looks SO good. I just bookmarked it and I hope to try it in the next year since my bookmarked list is too long 😛 I think halving it is the way to go, it already looks pretty big. Mmm.
