To say I am a huge football fan would be a total understatement.  I pretty much bleed green and gold.  Even my kids know to not bug mommy on FOOTBALL DAY.  Seriously though, my 2 year old wakes up and says, “Mommy, it’s FOOTBALL DAY!”  Game day is a fun day and they usually watch at least part of the game with me.  I love having friends and family over for the game, and the playoffs are the perfect time for a party, especially when our team is playing.  When my sister told me they would be coming out to watch the game, I knew I wanted to make it awesome.

Split the frosting into two bowls.  In each bowl, add the food coloring to get your desired colors.  We went with green and yellow.
