Football Cake

Football Cake recipe
photo by:kraft
I made this cake for my son's 3rd birthday. It was really good and not that hard to make. The only problem I had was the "laces" got a little runny in the fridge, but no more

what you need

pkg.  (2-layer size) chocolate cake mix
 Brown decorating gel

Make It

GREASE and flour 13x9-inch baking pan; set aside. Prepare cake batter and bake in prepared pan as directed on package. Cool 15 min.; remove from pan to wire rack. Cool completely.

TRIM corners and sides from cake to resemble football shape. Reserve trimmings for snacking or another use.

FROST cake with frosting. Use decorating gel to add the "laces" to the "football." Store in refrigerator.

Kraft Kitchens Tips

Cooking Know-How
Make sure cakes are completely cooled before frosting. A warm cake can cause the frosting to soften or melt.
Creative Leftovers
Store cake trimmings in tightly covered container at room temperature. Cut into cubes, then layer with additional Fluffy Pudding Frosting to make a quick-and-easy trifle.
