Sam and I headed to Walmart to pick up party items. I love being able to pick up both ingredients for our party food as well as party decorations. With such a busy schedule, I really appreciate the ease of one stop shopping.
For our football-themed cake, I picked up:
- Snickers Minis
- Pretzel sticks
- Can white icing
- Plain, pre-made rectangle cake with white icing (bakery section)
A simple vanilla cake with buttercream frosting goes up a notch with colorful candy decorations in a football theme. Plus it’s oh-so-simple to create that you can enjoy plenty of time with your guests!
Creating a football-themed cake is simple. After frosting the cake, I used yellow, orange and green Skittles for the football field. Surrounding the field, along the sides of the cake, are purple, orange, yellow and red Skittles. “Players” are represented by Snickers Minis chocolates on the field.
For goal posts, I melted chocolate by placing chocolate chips in a plastic baggie and placing it in a dish of warm water.
Once they were melted, I snipped the corner off the bag and placed a small dab of chocolate on the end of pretzel sticks. Once the chocolate hardened, I placed the goal posts on either end of the cake.
Finally, I used some store bought frosting to create goal-lines on the cake.
This football party cake is an easy way to create a special treat for guests that everyone will love. It’s simple to create and a great way to get your kids involved in the kitchen. I know it’s going to be a big hit with our guests — and will probably become an often-requested treat for future football parties!
