Carlton Cupcakes by cakecrumbs Carlton Cupcakes by cakecrumbs
One thing you guys won't know about me is that I am a fanatical Carlton supporter (and member). I'm sure most of you won't even know what I'm talking about -- football. Specifically, Australian Rules Football. The only code that ever has or ever will matter to me. It's my life.

September is footy finals time, so I made some cupcakes to celebrate.

They're chocolate cupcakes, topped with whipped chocolate ganache. The toppers are made from fondant and white chocolate. I gave a third if the cupcakes the Carlton logo, a third of them the official finals "#BELIEVE" hashtag and a third the number 6 to celebrate Kade Simpson's (my favourite player) 200th game.

Sometimes people ask me if I have a favourite chocolate cupcake recipe. This is it. It's amazing. Try it for yourself:

(My friend from down under taught me how to bounce the Australian football so that it'd return to me last summer, only thing I know about the sport!)

You can't go wrong with chocolate and these look so lovely and moist and yielding on the inside :heart:

You're actually doing better than me! I never really got a handle on the whole bouncing thing. Kicking? Sure. Bouncing, no no no no no. AFL is one of the few sports I prefer to watch than play.

erm.... would that be soccer or tackle football? i'd assume it's what Americans call soccer, but Australian rules... ?

Nah, we call soccer soccer. AFL is probably closer to Gaelic football than anything. Except we have an oval-shaped ball, like a rugby ball. And you can also tackle. In AFL you can kick, bounce or handpass the ball, but you can't throw it as in rugby. We have 4 posts at each end of the ground: if you kick it between the two big middle sticks you get 6 points, if it hits the post or goes between the smaller sticks it's 1 point. And that's the basics of it.

This is a super quick highlight reel from our Elimination Final if you wanna see what the same looks like: youtu.be/mEW-TwpeCM8

ah, i see. it's pretty similar to american football, except for the no-throwing part. and the multiple sticks. we just have the big Y shaped thing at the ends of the field.

Thank you! It's awesome to see other peo9ple on dA who know what AFL is haha. As I was posting it I was like 'no one is gonna have any clue what I'm on about'.

Which team do you barrack for?

No worries! I completely agree - I had to do a double take when I saw the cupcakes, namely because so few people on here do seem to know it at all. I can't blame you for feeling that way!

The Lions, as a Brisbanite myself - hopefully they'll be more successful next year. I do quite like Carlton though. ;)

I knew you were crazy Little Pixel Heart Annoying and I have no idea what that whole first paragraph is saying. Blame it on my culture, over here it's hockey that matters. 

Those cupcakes look so delicious, I think I'd try to fit two in my mouth at the same time that's how good they look.

Crazy as a cocnut. :crazy:

Hahaha, yeah you guys and your hockey is like us and our footy.

I'm pretty sure Cam tried that at one point. I use that recipe so often now, in all manner of cakey creations.

Makes me wonder if Cam has you making Hawk ones for Saturday lol. Expect txt messages on the day! Even if both our teams are not there /sob. We can cry together.

Haha. Sadly I am making a Hawthorn-ish cake. But it will only be brown and gold, no logos (at least none planned at this point). We're going over to this house to watch the final with his family (they're all Hawthorn, cept his dad who is Collingwood) and he not-so-subtly hinted that I should make a footy cake. I always said I'd never make him anything Hawks til I'd made something Carlton firsts so now I have no excuse. :/

Our poor, poor teams. Who are you barracking for in the final? Rumour over here has it that even the hardest of WEagles supporters are backing Freo, they tell us the West has Freo fever. Is that true, or does the old rivalry persist?

DarkHunter666 Featured By Owner Sep 28, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Bah, this is so delayed. To answer your questions the rumors were pretty accurate. My family dislike Freo and we were all barracking for the team today simply because we only have 2 west teams in the footie all up lol. Literally everything over here was purple - in Fremantle itself when we went their during the week the roads were painted purple haha.

Shame they didn't win but it was their first Grand Final after all. Must of been overwhelming for them.

I find that so amazing. Over here most people are like 'go for the Victorian team!'. Until it's Collingwood. Then we don't even care if it's GWS, we want anyone else to win. 

You could really see how much the nerves got to them. They missed some of the most basic set shots, and it just set their mindset for the rest of the game. Their third quarter was phenomenal, but mostly I was just sad for them. They'll be way better next time. Finals experience counts for a lot.
