Chocolate Football Cake

Wow! Can you believe the SUPER BOWL is just around the corner? I posted a bunch of APPETIZERS throughout the month of December, plus a few more thrown in for good measure in January, so check those out for your Super Bowl PARTY. However, this cute cut-up cake is always a hit at any FOOTBALL party. It's from my Easy Cut-Up Cakes for Kids book and, of course, is super easy to make!

Football Cake
1 chocolate cake mix
Chocolate frosting
1 large tube white frosting

1. Make cake mix according to package directions. Bake cake as directed on box for a 9 x 13-inch pan. Cool cake in pan for 10 minutes, and invert and cool completely on a wire rack.
2. Cut the cake according to the diagram below and throw away or eat the unused pieces.
3. Frost the entire cake with chocolate frosting. Using the white tube frosting or a decorator's bag, draw a white line in the center of the football and then the smaller white lines across it to look like the football laces.
4. On each end of the football, draw curved white lines for the football's stripes.

TIP: Using 1 to 2 large tubes of green frosting, create grass around the football by putting the end of tube right up against the bottom of the football and pulling out while pressing on the tube.
