Of course I incorporated some polka dots into our Super Bowl festivities. These flags were made simply made from washi tape and skewers.
To make these flags:
Break skewers in half. Trim off any fringe from the broken ends.
Cut off about 4 inches of washi tape. Lay sticky side up. (Of course!)
Lay the broken end of the skewer in the center of the tape.
Carefully fold the tape over the skewer, making the ends of tape meet eachother. Press and smooth tape together.
Cut a little V into the end of the flag.
And wha la! You have an easy washi tape flag!
These whoopie pies were just as easy to make. I cheated and used a Pillsbury Whoopie Pie Kit. I also threw these together really fast!
How to make these "my way" using a Pillsbury Whoopie Pie Kit (Yields 6 pies vs. 12):
You will need an egg shaped cookie cutter if you do not have a football shaped one.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line baking sheet with parchment paper. Add the ingredients and blend according to directions. Drop batter by heaping tablespoons full onto cookie sheet a few inches apart from one another. Spread batter gently into an oval shape almost the size of your cookie cutter. Bake 8-9 minutes (checking at 8) Remove from oven and let set for 2 minutes. Remove halves from baking sheet with spatula to cool on a wire rack. If using an egg shaped cookie cutter, line narrow end of cookie cutter up at the edge of one end of whoopie pie half. Press cookie cutter down. Turn cookie cutter around lining narrow end of cookie cutter up at the edge of the wide end of your now egg shaped whoopie pie half and press down again. Now you have a football! Do this to all of them. Squeeze some icing from packet included in kit onto one whoopie pie half and then top with another half. Add the second icing packet to a piping bag, using a #3 or #5 tip and pipe laces on.
There you have it, SUPER Easy Football Whoopie Pies. If you have any questions feel free to ask. I hope this was clear since I didn't get a chance to take step-by-step pictures while I was making these for our little Super Bowl party.
