Super Bowl Team Color Tips


I received an e-mail from McCormick & Company today that offered up ideas to help personalize your menu for the Super Bowl around your team's colors. These are all really fun ideas, so I thought I'd share them here.

From McCormick & Company: Bring the competition off the field and into the kitchen with battling cupcakes in colors from both coasts.

Team Color Guide
Use these food color recommendations from the McCormick Kitchens to help clinch a victory for your party spread.

    Purple Cake Mix: Add 35 drops Neon Purple Food Color + 20 drops Neon Blue Food Color to 1 package (15.25 to 18.5 oz.) white cake mix
