Rated 5 out of 5 by cake appeal from I used the football shaped pan for a boys birthday cake not to long ago. I made two cake's and stacked them so it looked like a full football. I used his school colors to write on the cake, put chocolate pudding in between the chocolate cake layers. Iced the out side with chocolate frosting, and white stripe with white frosting. I put it on a 8" cake round covered in cello wrap that was one of the school colors. Him and his family loved it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Julia Anderson from I made the football cake & a Helmet cake for our son's varsity potluck dinner in Aug. 2010. I had not cut them yet. The boys (who were severed 1st) would not cut them. I had no idea that I could do this. I was so glad there was a place I could look/read to understand what I needed to do. They said they looked to real to cut into. Later a mom did it for them and they all enjoyed them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by hjseibel from I used two of the cakes back to back to make a 3-D football for my brother in law's grooms cake. I set it up on a small cake board on a football T and placed it on a "grass" cake like it was sitting on the field. It received rave reviews and was great fun to make. This cake was a little more difficult than the one football cake, but totally worth it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by VolleyballBakingTheatre from This is a great cake to make for football parties! It is sure to impress. I would suggest frosting completely in brown frosting, and then placing it in the fridge for a few minutes so that the white icing does not mix with the brown. Overall, this is a wonderful cake, and I'll be using it again soon!

Rated 5 out of 5 by plain_jame from Super super easy, and so cute! I can't wait to make it again for my sons second birthday next month! You can just frost with chocolate frosting and then white, or do it more fancy and pipe stars or even do fondant! It's easy to start at the bottom and work your way up if you pipe stars.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ice1 from My grandson wanted a football field with this cake on it. Made a large sheet cake and put the football in the middle. Made his favorite team logo with royal icing and put it near the "goal" line. He absolutely loved it! Completed the look with plastic players.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Christy7499 from Such an easy and fun way to match the theme of a big football game with this pan. I have made this cake so many times and always get great reviews. You can always add it on top of a sheet cake that is iced like a football field for a larger gathering.
