Football Cake


1 (18.25-oz.) pkg. Devil's Food Cake Mix

1/4 teaspoon red food color*
4 drops yellow food color*
1 (16-oz.) can Milk Chocolate Frosting
1/4 cup Creamy Vanilla Frosting (from 16-oz. can)

Preparation Directions:

1. Heat oven to 350F. Generously spray one 8-inch round and one 8-inch square pan with nonstick cooking spray. Prepare cake mix as directed on package. Divide batter evenly into sprayed pans.

2. Bake at 350F. for 35 to 45 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool cakes in pans for 15 minutes. Remove cakes from pans; place on wire racks. Cool 30 minutes or until completely cooled.

3. Place round cake in center of serving tray or foil-covered cardboard. Cut square cake in half diagonally making 2 triangles. Cut off rounded piece from each side of round cake (you will have a sort of rectangle with rounded ends), then fit cut edge of triangles up against the cut edges of round cake to form football shape. ( It is a good idea to make a paper pattern by drawing around the bottom of your round and square pans, then cut these paper pieces as directed above and fit together so you can actually see how they fit.)

4. Add red and yellow food color to milk chocolate frosting; blend well. Frost sides and top of cake. To create texture, lightly touch blade of serrated knife across top and sides of cake randomly.

5. Place vanilla frosting in quart-sized resealable plastic bag; seal bag. Cut small hole in bottom corner of bag. Make white frosting laces on football.

12 servings

Tip: * Orange gel food color can be substituted for the red and yellow food color.
