Triangle bakeries crank out Super Bowl sweets for the big game.

Chicken wings and dips may be Super Bowl party staples, but Triangle-area bakers are keeping busy this week fulfilling orders for game-day parties.

Orders for Panthers cookies and goal-post cupcakes have been rolling in all week at Mad Hatter Bakeshop, in Durham.

"We are such a bakery that is always kind of in tune with the fans," Mad Hatter owner, Fida Ghamen said. "So we're looking forward to have a victory this Sunday."

Ghamen said they plan to stay busy through game day - stalking up for last minute party-goers on Sunday too.

"You can stop by and pick up because we're going to have it in our cases," Ghamen said.

Jonathan McCurry, owner of Goody Box Cupcakes in Morrisville, said their small business is extremely busy making almost 200 cupcakes just for Super Bowl orders Thursday alone.

"We wish people would give us a lot more notice, but you know, we take what we can," McCurry said.

Goody Box owners tell us between buying extra ingredients and waking up extra early to make frosting, bake and assemble cupcakes, it's exhausting.

"Getting up earlier in the morning, and coming in here, and starting earlier it's a lot of extra time," McCurry said.

Goody Box Cupcakes will take orders through Friday for Saturday pick-ups, but is closed Sunday.

When asked if he would be watching the big game on Sunday, McCurry said "I might ... I might instead take a nap."
