Rated 4 out of 5 by SweetDecorating from Beware: This cake is time consuming more than it is difficult. This cake is very large; you will need an entire package of 13" x 19" cake boards. First, cut one cake board in half lengthwise. Place a full board between the two narrow pieces. Your dimensions will be 26" W x 19" H. Place two cake boards side by side, and tape on top of the first layer. Repeat with 2 more boards, and place underneath the first layer. Your seams should be alternating. Cover with foil. My son wanted M&M cookie dough for the body parts. I made one recipe, and baked all the dough in a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. By the time it came out of the oven, I had the patterns cut apart. I then realized I needed more dough. I cut out the head and tail after the cookie cooled. I didn't like the Roll-Out Cookie Dough recipe given. It stuck to my counter. I ended up lining a cookie sheet with parchment paper, and rolling out the dough directly on the cookie sheet. I would recommend a refrigerated sugar cookie dough recipe. I used one batch of the Roll-Out dough to make the remaining parts that I needed. I spent 8-10 hours baking cookies and the football cake. I spent 6 hours making and coloring icing, assembling, and decorating the cake. I used 2 recipes of buttercream icing. My son loved his birthday cake! It was well worth the time and effort.
