Super Bowl Snack Stadium
When New Day Northwest asked me to create a Snack Stadium to celebrate the Seahawks in the Super Bowl, I was IN!
Creating a snack stadium is easier than you think! Although my green cardboard display boxes were donated to me by Party City, you can easily use boxes lined with parchment paper or foil or dispoable tins or even cardboard magazine holders from your local office store!
For the food, I started with a sheet cake and frosted it with green buttercream. I used the Viva towel method to smooth out the field - so easy to do and you find a great tutorial from my sweet friend Melissa at My Cake School here. I made the yard lines and letters out of fondant.
These cute 12th Men are made from Rice Krispie treats dipped in blue candy melts. I attached a vanilla wafer with melted candy coating and drew a smiley face using a black edible marker. The 12 is made from white cookie icing.
Pretzel rods dipped in vanilla Candiqik and sprinkled with green and blue non-pareils are one of our favorite football snacks! I dressed them up a little with sugar football.
Mmmmmm marshmallow pops! I simply dipped the tops into vanilla Candiquik and then into blue or green sugar sprinkles. With a blue edible marker I made a 12 on the front of each pop.
I topped these store-bought brownie bites with green buttercream icing and the cutest chocolate football from SweetWorks.
I can't tell you how much I LOVE Sixlets candy. They are not only my favorite candy coated chocolate, but look! You can create ANYTHING with them. I made a 12th man section in my Snack Stadium using navy blue and white Sixlets from SweetWorks! They even served as the base for my pretzel rods and marshmallow pops!
*Special thanks to SweetWorks for not only donating but overnighting the candy in time for the television show and the studio audience giveaway. Thanks also to Everett Mall Party City for donating their cardboard display cases for the stadium.
