Homemade 18th Football Birthday Cake

I made the 18th Football Birthday Cake for my nephew's birthday. He is a big Sheffield Wednesday fan but has just been signed for Sheffield United, hence the Sheffield Wednesday scarf and the Sheffield United player on top.

The cake was made in 2 halves, I used a Wilton football cake mould. As the cake was going to be very large and heavy, I decided to put some dowels in the bottom cake and another cake board before putting the top half on. I then covered the whole thing in fondant. I made a template out of cardboard for the shapes on the football and cut these out of white and black fondant.

The character was made from fondant, I used dry spaghetti to hold it together. The scarf was also made out of fondant.

I thoroughly enjoyed making the cake and everyone at the party loved it, plus it tasted delicious. Hope you like it.

Coolest Ohio State Buckeyes Cake 12

Homemade Ohio State Buckeyes Cake

Homemade Ohio State Buckeyes Cake

Every year I try to come up with a creative way to celebrate the Ohio Sate University versus Michigan University football game. I decided to make a Block O Ohio State Buckeyes Cake. I used 2 cake mixes and a large sheet pan. The cake took forever to bake, and was slightly depressed in the center. This ended up working out perfectly and gave great shape to my "O".

I trimmed the four corners to make the shape and used store bought red frosting, as I hate making that color! I crumb coated and base coated in white buttercream. With a large star tip I did the red and used a round tip for the grey and white stripes. I also used store bought green to save time. I was not happy with my leaf, but I had never made one before.

The "buckeye" was a Ferrero Rocher candy and it looked perfect! Go Bucks!

Coolest Panthers Jersey Birthday Cake 109

This Panthers Jersey Birthday Cake was my son's birthday cake this year - obviously he was turning 9! As he's really getting into football now that he's getting older and his favorite NFL team is the Carolina Panthers, I thought a Panthers inspired jersey cake would fit the bill perfectly!

I started with a yellow sheet cake, cut it down to resemble the shape of a jersey, covered it with vanilla buttercream, then white fondant. I then painted over the white fondant using a mixture of lemon flavoring and white shimmer dust to give it the same shimmer as the Panthers home jersey. Then I rolled out blue and black fondant and used my Cricut to cut out the letters and number 9 and freehanded the stripes on the sleeve and the border of the neckline.

He was very excited to see the finished product!

Homemade Boise State Football Cake

This Boise State Football Cake was a cake for my 15 year old grandson. His dream is to play football at Boise State. The bottom is a 11 x 15 sheet cake. The cake is a scratch white classic cake that I got from all recipes. I frosted it with colored buttercreme frosting. The top is made from a Norticware stadium pan.

I carved it to look like Big Blue. The rest is all piped on with using #4 straight, #6 star, Basketweave, and grass tips. The logo in the middle of the field is a key fob I bought at the Boise Book Store. I hope that you like viewing this cake as much as I enjoyed making it. My grandson flipped when he saw this cake. I mean he actually did a back flip. It was the coolest!

What a great cake! I am from Boise and went to BSU. In our house we follow two teams and one is still BSU. I love this cake and will have to show my mom, who doesn't do computers but is always around when I do my cakes. She will appreciate this as well!

Thank you Lisa R
