10 Edible Stadiums for Your Super Bowl Party
The grill master's edible stadium
The biggest sporting event in the States is around the corner, and while football fans are eager to find out which two teams will make it to MetLife Stadium, we at Chow Bella are getting excited for the Super Bowl snacks. Throw the ultimate party with your very own snackadium, a centerpiece made of game day foods like burgers, potato chips, and -- if your resolutions are still on your mind -- veggie sticks. If you're more focused on enjoying the eating event of the season, opt for pizza, M&Ms, and piles upon piles of Twinkies.
Can't decide how to build your edible football stadium? Here are ten ways to construct a one-of-a-kind snack stadium for Super Bowl XLVIII.
Need we say more? Pile on the burgers and hot dogs to build a stadium of meat. You can go in whole hog by making walls of ribs. The structure starts with giant meat patties, and the crowd is -- you guessed it -- more grilled meat. Top with a lettuce field and mustard and ketchup end zones. We can't help but think this is missing cheese, but cheddar helmets are a simple solution to that problem.
A MetLife Stadium cake is the ideal Super Bowl dessert.

The 2014 Super Bowl will be played in Rutherford, NJ, at the home of the New York Giants and New York Jets. What could be more appropriate for your party than a MetLife Stadium made of cake? This one requires baking and assembling a 4- or 5-layer cake and sculpting the entire thing by hand. A replica of MetLife Stadium is an expert-level cake project; intermediate cake crafters can try their hands at the Rice Krispies Stadium (page 3).
A simple snackadium for pizza lovers
This version of a snack stadium, courtesy of Pillsbury, is practical, easy to make, and will no doubt get demolished at your Super Bowl party. Bon Appétit supplies video instructions for this simple snackadium. The field is guacamole with white yard lines made of piped sour cream, and the fans -- chips, pigs in a blanket, and Chex Mix -- are kept in check with foil and plastic containers. Don't like guac? Swap it out for a Football Pizza. Line the perimeter with sub sandwiches to complete.
