Awesome Homemade Football Birthday Cake Design

I used the Wilton football pan to make this Football Birthday Cake Design. I made chocolate cake with chocolate hazelnut Italian meringue buttercream filling. I baked two cakes and placed one upside down and then added a moistening syrup, then the filling.

I then placed the other cake on top and crumb coat iced it. I covered it with chocolate brown homemade fondant. I cleansed and used my son’s miniature football to press onto the fondant in order to achieve the detail.
