I made a 10 inch square cake and covered it with buttercream then I covered it with green fondant icing. I rolled a long piece of white fondant and placed it over the middle of the cake to make the scarf and added black strips to make the stripes and added the fringing as well.
Then I started to make the footballer which was just pieces of coloured fondant mostly rolled into balls and shaped and lines pressed on with a knife to make the hair and roly socks. Finally I coloured coconut with green colouring make the grass and sprinkled it on the cake and board.
I was very pleased with the results of this Footballer Cake.
