Rated 5 out of 5 by from i make this football cake for football parties, and its a great hit. i make this football cake for football parties, and its a great hit. for an easier, and maybe quicker football, you can cut out a a 2x9 rectangle out of the middle of the cake. then you can remove the rectange and push the reminaing cake together, with some frosting in between. I then serve it on a platter with toasted coconut, that i tinted gree (to resemble grass) with the leftover rectangle, you can cut it up into bite sized pieces, and frost the tops, and put a toothpick into each one for easy eating.

Have made this cake for several church functions and have always been asked for the recipe. Most have thought it would be a difficult cake to make because it tastes so good. I especially like the light frosting on this cake. I usually don't eat frosting myself.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I made this as a cupcake recipe. I made this as a cupcake recipe. Everyone was freaking out about how great they were. I used de-caf coffee, and German Chocolate cake mix. I even had enough icing left over to re-fill the cool whip tub, and I put it in the freezer for next time! De-lish!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This was a delicious cake! This was a delicious cake!!! Will definitely make again. I tried putting it in the freezer for a few hours before cutting and it cut very easily and mess free. I also put it back in the freezer for a little while so the frosting would not melt.
