Gameday Cupcakes

In the recent craze of gourmet cupcakes, Southen Living was inspired to come up with 16 College Football Cakes.  Included in the cupcake line-up were both Auburn and LSU. If you are having trouble coming up with dessert ideas for this weeks tailgate; check out these two recipes. Both recipes use vanilla cupcakes, so the only fuss is the frosting and garnishes!
