To make these green wrappers, you can start by making white modeling chocolate and use green coloring, or you can just buy green colored confectionery coating or Candy Melts. If you are making a lot of these, I would recommend getting the green candy coating. It will be much easier.
White Chocolate Football Field Cupcake Wrappers
green colored modeling chocolate, recipe here (either make white and color it green or make your modeling chocolate using green colored confectionery coating/candy melts)
white modeling chocolate, recipe here
non-stick baking mat
fondant rolling pin
optional, metal clay extruder
small metal number cutters
Extrude some white modeling chocolate through a clay extruder creating thin strips in two different widths, using one small rectangle plate and one larger plate. You can also simply just cut the strips using a pizza wheel or knife. I like the clay extruder, because each of my stripes are the same width.
Cut thin strips into 3/4 inch pieces. Cut the thick strips long enough to go vertically across your wrappers.
Roll some white modeling chocolate out and cut out one “50” and two “40’s” for each wrapper.
Lightly brush the back side of your modeling chocolate pieces with wather and press them onto the wrapper, arranged like the picture above.
If you need to make these ahead of time, I suggest you store the modeling chocolate wrapper in an airtight container separate from the cupcakes. The moisture from the cupcakes will affect the texture of the modeling chocolate. You can go ahead and wrap the cupcakes forming the cupcake wrapper, then pop the cupcake out of the wrapper. The day you want to serve them, lower the cupcake back into the edible wrapper, add some frosting and you are ready to go.
