Hellllllo, basketball fans!
There’s this little shindig happening in the college basketball world, you might have heard of it. Last week I shared an NCAA® March Madness inspired snack station and slam dunk cookie recipe and this week I’m back with yet another NCAA® March Madness inspired party display and recipe! Yay for sporting tournaments that give us a reason to entertain guests, whip up new recipes and create stylish yet guy friendly displays.
Grab the NCAA® March Madness party ideas + cherry coke cupcake recipe details below!
Styling displays is my all time favorite thing to do when it comes to entertaining guests. Creating this NCAA® March Madness party display is easy and requires a few simple items to do so. Sweet treats is a must for any celebration. Creating a basic sweet recipe and adding basketball inspired decor or clever recipe name is all that’s required.
My go-to entertaining items for this basketball inspired party display included striped fabric, multiple sweets, Coca-Cola NCAA® Final Four Pack available at Walmart, popcorn treat bags and a basketball of course. Creating a spread that both the ladies and the guys will enjoy is achievable by keeping things simple. A gorgeous display doesn’t have to be an elaborate display. The guys will appreciate you hosting any type of basketball themed party and adding cherry coke cupcakes is the cherry on top of the soiree. See what I did there?
Aside from the delish cherry coke cupcakes (recipe below) I added a little basketball pizzaz to a simple chocolate cake. To create this NCAA® March Madness inspired cake you’ll need chocolate cake, chocolate icing and orange round candy of your choice. I’m all about the ‘don’t cover the entire cake in icing’ look, especially when adding other items to the cake itself. This cake looks super fun, right? I’m eating a slice as we chat about basketball parties… I tell no lies.
I’ve been wanting to try my hand at coke inspired sweets for some time now and my wish has came true. You’re totally going to love these cupcakes with cherry coke icing! Next time you’re doing your shopping be on lookout for the Coca-Cola NCAA® Final Four Pack available at Walmart. The in-store display can most likely be located in the front of the store and available for either 4/$5 or 3/$5 in certain areas of the country. Before heading to Walmart for these cool basketball cans be sure to check out the recipe ingredients below or hit the recipe print button. I would totally go ahead and hit the print button.
