I made this Football Field cake for my fiance's 22nd Birthday. I did it last minute after I ran across the extremely inexpensive plastic toppers (the football players, field goals)at Party City.
I had planned on making him a two layer round cake so when I found these pieces and decided to do a theme for him I didn't even think about the fact that I should use my rectangular cake pans. The football players had a square thing their feet were attached to, I simply pushed those into the cake and covered with icing.
When icing the cake I simply tapped the knife (on its side)on and off of the cake to make it look a little more like grass.
If I did anything differently it would definitely be to use rectangle cake pans and possibly a little more detail.
Note: the plastic pieces came with many more football players and another field goal. I didn't use these because of my space limit on my round cake.
This football field cake was a fun cake. I made it last year for my son's birthday. I did a single layer full size sheet pan. After baking it, cut off the top to make it level. This was the piece I used to cut out the football on top to make it stand up a bit.
I started with the #16 tip and iced the football. The field is also done with the # 16 tip. I put the yard lines first and then went to work on the green of the field. I added the numbers for the yard lines and added TOUCH DOWN!! to each end zone.
I wanted to add goal posts but couldn't come up with a quick idea. I bought little wooden footballs that I used for the corners just for a little extra.
He loved this cake and it looked great when it was finished. Your hand will get a little tired but it is well worth it! Have fun!
I made this Football Birthday Cake Design for my husband’s Birthday. He is a HUGE Kentucky fan, football, basketball…you name it! I started off with a homemade chocolate cake; I used a 9’’by 11’’ pan and cut to shape. I then cut the cake in half and filled with a homemade chocolate buttercream icing, and crumb coated. I topped the cake with a homemade marshmallow fondant. I separated the fondant into three segments and colored two of them brown and UK blue.
The stripes and laces were very easy to do, the UK symbol however was not. I printed the logo off of the computer twice, and started cutting shapes. I first did the white background for the logo, then cut out the U and the K. I cut really thin strips of the blue to outline the white background.
My husband was so amazed at this cake, he absolutely loved it! It took him at least an hour to cut into it!
I made this Football Birthday Cake Design by baking 2 sponges in pudding bowls for the acquired football shape. I baked the sponges in clingfilm inside the pudding bowls, and placed the bowls in water to save the ceramic pudding bowls from cracking during baking.
Once cooled, I then made sure each sponge pudding was of equal half dome shaped size by cutting off the excess and sticking them together with butter icing and jam, and then to the board.
I then cut out the pentagon and hexagon shapes from white and black sugarpaste icing and sticking them on with butter icing all around the football shape.
The writing was made from mixing icing sugar with black food colouring, and piped on to the board.
