This auburn football cake is so much easier than it looks! This is probably one of the quickest cakes I have ever done too.
For the shape of the cake I used Wilton's football shaped pan which I got at Michael's. Then I covered the cake in chocolate fondant, and cut out strips of white fondant for the stripes/laces.
To make the line down the middle of the cake, I stretched a flower wire across it and used it to make an indent to make the football look more realistic.
To make the "AU" logo, I first traced the logo onto a folder to use as a template. Then I cut out my template and held it on my cake where I wanted the logo to go. Using an Xacto knife and holding my template in place, I gently traced around the letters in the logo so that when I pull my template away, I can see an indent of the logo. Then I traced the outside of the logo/letters with orange icing, and filled it all in with the blue icing.
For the last part, using a grass tip I piped some light and dark green stripes onto the cake board to make it resemble a field.
I made this Alabama Football Birthday Cake for Alabama’s biggest fan, my dad, for his 60th birthday. I bought the mold for the “Big A”, “Big AL” resin statue” and football. This full sheet (11x15 pan x 4) double layer cake was half chocolate cake mix and the other half yellow cake mix, (store bought Betty Crocker) with vanilla butter cream filling.
I made the butter cream icing from confectioners sugar (12c.), real unsalted butter (2 sticks), salt (2 tsp), clear vanilla flavor (8 tsp) and milk (1 cup).
I iced the sides in grey, field green for the top and star tipped the “A” and end zones in crimson red and white. I had to fabricate the goal posts from crafting dowel rods since the cake was so big, (couldn’t find any to buy that weren’t too small). Everyone loved it. The cake was really moist because I used butter recipe cake mix.
I don’t have any experience in cake decorating but I had an image in my head of what I wanted it to look like and that’s exactly how it turned out.

I made this Cleveland Browns Birthday Cake for a friend at work for his "50th" birthday and obviously is a Brown's fan.
First I bought the T-shirt cake pan off of a local website and used a cake mix from a box. I did not fill this cake at all.
I simply iced the cake with buttercream icing then covered it with the fondant icing I had colored the night before.
I layed on the fondant icing and made a little name plate for the man who turned "50". I could have done the number better but I just free handed it with a knife because it was getting late and wanted it too be done. I then just layed on some white fondant to cover the sleeves and put on the orange stripes and called it a night.
I used the cake release on this pan because it seems to come out of shape pans better than just Crisco and flower.
