There are a couple advantages of having gone to a super-huge state university… Not to mention an SEC school. One of these advantages is having a football team that turns students into life-long fans. Which means, even though we’ve graduated, we occasionally get to pretend like we haven’t left Athens, Georgia (or the great University of Georgia) and take part in the awesomeness that is SEC football days.
Such was the case this weekend. Turns out our favorite building mates from across the hall went to Auburn. In case you’re not aware, this is a big rivalry. So we had a little pre-game get together and baked these delicious treats. (Get the recipe here.)
Not only were they incredibly tasty (seriously, these are the best cupcakes I’ve ever participated in making), but they were RED & BLACK (yay, go Dawgs!). And, they were my favorite (red velvet), Kalie-friendly (gluten free), and featured homemade cream cheese icing.. Despite the fact that our team won, we most certainly scored big points as well… Success!
