I made this soccer birthday cake for my nephew’s birthday.  I  haven’t made a large cake like this for over ten years. I had forgotten about a few things, 1) was how heavy cakes get, and 2) was don’t make it bigger than your car!  We fitted it in the car without an inch to spare and drove very slowly to the party.

I used a glass bowl to bake the soccer ball. I used fruit roll ups to make all the lines on field and shorts. I melted suckers for the nets and used sour gummies for shoe laces. I also used foam letters not shown in picture for all the words. It was bright and easy to read.

I had a great time making this cake and everyone love it.
