Show your school spirit in the most delicious way possible – cheer the team on with team color cupcakes!

Just find your colors using our Team Color Icing Guide and follow the number of drops with our Color Right Performance Color System.

Each drop formula is created for two cups’ worth of icing. I love using our 4.5 pound tub of Decorator Icing because it’s delicious and a huge time saver. If I need more icing, it’s easy to recreate the same color again with the drop system without making a whole new batch of icing from scratch.
