How to Create a Football Theme Cake for a Football Party

Gather Your Supplies
Some supplies for a Football Field Cake.

Some of the supplies you will need to make a Football Field Cake.

Donna Pilato
This fun football cake will be the focal point of your dessert table at your next football theme party whether it's for a child's birthday, the NFL playoffs, or the Super Bowl. This cake uses green tinted coconut for the grass, but you could use vanilla frosting that has been tinted green if you know your guests aren't fans of coconut.

You will need:

  • 1 13" x 9" sheet cake that has been frosted chocolate (my preference) or vanilla.
  • 7 oz. shredded, sweetened coconut that has been tinted by shaking in a plastic bag with 1 teaspoon green food gel
  • 1 pretzel rod divided in two parts
  • 4 short pretzel sticks, 2 of which have been divided in half
  • 1 cup white chocolate chips
  • 1 can white decorator frosting
  • Assorted football cake decorations such as footballs, plastic players, team flags
