Things you need for the football birthday cake:

  • 1 round cake
  • Royal icing in white and black for the football
  • Royal icing in green for the sides of the cake
  • Wilton nozzle no. 3

Here is how you make the cake:

Firstly, take your cake pan and draw the outline on a wax paper. Next, draw the hexagons to resemble that of a football.

Turn the wax paper over. Using black royal icing, make an outline of the black hexagons. Using the same black icing and nozzle, fill in the black outlined hexagons with icing.

Next, use the white icing to fill the rest of the football. Leave it to set and harden. Once set, carefully remove the wax paper off and place the football on your cake. Be sure to dab a thin layer of icing on your cake first and most importantly, make sure your cake surface is level, or else your football will crack.

Finally, use the green icing to cover the sides of the cake. Let the green icing cover the sides of the ball slightly to give it a ‘football in the grass’ effect.
