Gig ‘Em Aggies! 12th Man Popcorn Cake

In case you hadn’t heard, it was a heck of a season for Aggie Football.  They were such a fun team to watch this season.  I was devastated after the first game against Florida, but was full of hope from what I saw.  Hubs and I went to one game in College Station early in the season; a non-conference game against South Carolina State.


Everything about this season was just amazing.  From our great 11-2 record, to beating Alabama in Tuscaloosa, to a great finish in the Cotton Bowl…. and well… the HEISMAN!   

I spent most of the season as we did our tailgating at home trying to come up with an Aggie specific dessert.  But I had a hard time coming up with anything.  I made cakes using my A&M cake pan, but that just wasn’t doing it for me.  It needed to be maroon and red velvet just doesn’t cut it. 

Finally, the day before the Cotton Bowl game, I came up with an idea. 

I’ve mentioned Popcorn Cake here before, I believe.  Well, that day before the Cotton Bowl, I drove all over town looking for maroon M&M’s to make a 12th Man Popcorn Cake and finally found some at Party City.  The result?
