This cake is perfect for a Super Bowl bash
, a football birthday party or any time you want to please your little NFL fans. This cake scores big with parents, too, since it only takes a few easy steps to create.
What You'll Need
A 9 x 11 sheet cake pan.
A boxed cake mix or the ingredients for your favorite homemade cake recipe.
A piping bag.
Bake the cake in the sheet pan according to directions.
Remove the cake from the oven and allow to cool for about 30 minutes.
Carve the shape of a football out of the sheet cake.
Freeze the football shape for at least 30 minutes. This will make it easier to frost without crumbling around the cut edges.
Frost the cake with chocolate frosting.
Fill the piping bag with white frosting.
Pipe on the stripes and lacing features.
Tips and Tricks
- Start with a chocolate frosted sheet cake, pre-made and purchased from the store.
- If you have an oven-safe, oval shaped casserole dish, bake the cake in that to crate a football-shaped cake that you don't need to cut.
- Instead of piping on the details, arrange mini marshmallows or white chocolate chips on top to form the stripes and laces.
