I started this Soccer Ball Cake with 3 10 inch white cakes that I trimmed and frosted in butter cream frosting. Then I took rice crispie treats and made a ball. Next I frosted the ball. I then took white and black rolled fondant and cut out the pentagons and the hexagons and placed then on the frosted ball to make the soccer ball.
I placed the ball on top of the cake and piped green butter cream around the ball to look like grass. Finally I used white fondant for the base of the lettering. I just painted the Happy Birthday Dad in black food coloring.
