Super Bowl Helmelts 1

Superbowl LIII Helmets

Los Angeles Rams versus New England Patriots? Who are you rooting for this Superbowl Sunday?

Our father is a die hard New York Giant fans, so we’ve been Giants fans since birth. And while we’re rightly ashamed of our teams poor performance these past few years, the Anson household is diametrically opposed to the Patriots winning. Personally, I’m of the opinion that the game is just less exciting, always knowing that “Superbowl Next” is always going to be someone versus New England. I will, however, grudgingly admit that the Patriots really do have an amazing team. From the offensive line that gives Tom Brady all day to find a receiver; receivers that make incredible, acrobatic catches; and good management that can recognize talent and (more importantly) keep it.

Conversely, I don’t feel that LA should be rewarded for stealing the Rams from Saint Louis; but since that’s my only aggravation with them, I will be cheering them by default. Without a team that I’m genuinely excited about, this year’s fight for the Lombardi trophy be will have to be a truly, remarkable game for me to get invested in Superbowl LIII.

Helmets
 1 Box Cake Mix
 White Fondant
 Yellow Gel Food Coloring
 Blue Gel Food Coloring
 White Frosting
 Red Frosting
Frosting
 1 cup Confectioners' Sugar
 2 tsp Milk
 2 tsp Light Corn Syrup
 ¼ tsp Almond Extract

Cake
1

I found this football helmet mold at Aldi the other day and knew that I needed to have it. I made a cake mix from a box, following the directions on the box. I separated the batter into two bowls and then dyed one bowl yellow and the other bowl blue. I then poured the batters into the wells of the mold and baked for the recommended time of a cupcake. You do have to wait for the first round of cupcakes to cool before knocking them out of the pan and filling the wells again with any remaining batter.

Frosting
2

Once the cakes were cool, I made one recipe of the frosting; combining all the ingredients together and stirring well. Then dye the frosting silver by adding just a touch of the black gel pen to the white frosting. Pour the frosting over the blue cupcakes and let dry. Then make a second frosting recipe, dying it navy blue with a lot of black from the gel pen and blue food coloring. Once you've achieved the shade you want, frost the yellow cupcakes and allow the frosting to set.

Fondant
3

Dye some fondant blue and some yellow using gel food coloring and a pair of gloves (to keep from dying your fingers). Roll out the yellow fondant and cut into the shape of a ram horn and adhere to the blue helmet with a dab of frosting. Roll the blue fondant flat and cut out in the shape of the patriot insignia. Use red and white frosting to add detail to the patriot logo. Add red stripes at the end, flood the face area with white, and place a white dot over the face for the star. Adhere to the silver cupcake with a dab of frosting. Trace the face mask outline in red frosting for the Patriots and white for the Rams, if desired, and serve.
