Favorite Football Cake

If you have a kiddo who’s obsessed with sports or want to celebrate a big game, this is a fun way to celebrate! It’s easy to make—no special pans needed!

Ingredients 

1

– Flour – Vegetable oil – Sugar – Baking soda – Cocoa powder – Salt – White vinegar

– Vanilla extract – Chocolate Frosting

Whisk

2

Add the ingredients to a medium bowl and whisk gently to combine. Add the batter to the prepared pan, shaking gently to evenly distribute it.

Bake

3

Bake for 22-24 minutes or until the middle is firm to a light touch and a cake tester inserted into the center comes out cleanly. Try not to over bake.

Cool & Cut

4

Cool then transfer to a cutting board. Use a serrated knife to lightly press a line in the center. Cut about 3/4-inch to the left and right to remove a strip down the center.

Frosting

5

Prepare the quick chocolate frosting by adding all of the frosting ingredients to a bowl. Beat to combine well.

Frost

6

Place one side of the cake on the platter or plate on which you plan to serve it. Apply chocolate frosting to the center and press in the other side to make the football shape.

Frost

7

Cover the cake and sides with the frosting. Add the yogurt and powdered sugar to a small bowl and stir together. Add to a zip top bag and seal.

Laces

8

To add the white laces, cut off one bottom corner of the bag of white frosting and pipe on a curve at both ends and laces up the middle.

Serve

9

You can make it up to a day ahead and store it in an airtight container at room temperature. Frost closer to serving if possible.
