To start, we wanted to share our favorite football cake tutorial.  This video gives a step-by-step tutorial on how to create a 3D football cake, texture and all.  It is super in-depth and easy to follow along with the instructions.

We love this one because it does not require a major base for the cake!  No metal rods, no screws, no wood base!  Just simply a cake, icing and fondant.

Frosting Sheets:

Our favorite use of a frosting sheet for a football themed cake is to use this football field edible icing image.  Next, all you need to do is decorate the field with football figures, goal posts and any text that you wish to add. We have shared the goal post cake toppers and a figurine football team in the following Cake Topper section…

Using any of these cupcake rings, toppers or wrappers will be an amazing addition to your party!  Our tip for football cupcake decorating is to consider using either green frosting to resemble a football field or using frosting of your football team’s colors.
