Reserve 1/4 of the vanilla frosting. Place 3/4 of it in a bowl, then add green food coloring until it reaches the desired color. Place in a piping bag or a ziptop bag with one corner snipped off. Using short strokes, pipe the green frosting onto the cupcakes to resemble grass.
Allow frosting to set in the fridge for an hour, then place reserved white frosting into a piping bag or ziptop bag with one corner snipped.
Pipe one line down the center, then place a number on either side of the line to resemble yard lines.
Refrigerate until ready to serve.

    So cute! And using sugar free mix. These are jumbo cupcakes following their 12 to a box. Make regular size and cut nutritional # in half - 1/31/21
