Talk about the PERFECT game day dessert!You will be the envy of all other tailgates, in fact, I was!!! I had a girl from the next tailgate over (who happened to be from TN) ask to take a picture of my cake. I, of course, said SURE, and then once she took her picture I mentioned that they sell the pans for Tennessee too and I told her to head on over Game Day Tackle for all of her game day needs (including the awesome Silicone Pans).
I used a simple cake mix (I was running a little late the night before we had to wake up at 5am to head out to tailgate), and then we made a butter cream icing, dyed it orange (duh!), and, using my decorator bags, covered the top of the paw in dots. Finally, I sprinkled on some orange and white sprinkles. And... VOILA!
If I had a little more time (and hadn't dyed ALL of my icing orange, I would have used white and piped a thin line to outline the paw and in between the toes to make it pop more, but again... we were getting up at 5am for some TAILGATING!
The cupcake pan is ALSO perfect for molding dips for a little extra team spirit.

Jello Jiggler shots
(ie. Jello Shots with out a cup):
3 packages jello
1 box (with 4 packages inside) Knox Gelatine; found with the jello
Combine jello and the 4 packages of Gelatine in a large bowl.
While whisking, add 2 cups boiling water and stir 2 minutes until incorporated.
Add 2 cups vodka (yes, room temperature or cold is fine) and stir
Pour into a 9x13 glass baking dish and set in fridge until firm.
Cut into shapes or squares and store in Tupperware.
So I didn't take a "finished" picture... but here is how I brought them to the game
|Super easy to store! No trash after you "shoot" it :)|
