Woodinville Falcons Football Cake

Well, it's that time of year again... time for football season to end.  = (
I volunteered to make the cake for my son's "end of season football party" and ended up with the cake pictured above.  I did a quarter sheet chocolate cake on the bottom with buttercream icing.  Blue on the side, green 'grass' on the top using Wilton tip# 233, and a white shell border (blue, green and white are Woodinville colors). For the football, I used the Wilton football cake pan, did a vanilla cake, and covered it with marshmallow fondant.  White fondant for the laces and a green fondant "W" (for Woodinville) which I outlined with white buttercream icing. 

I was happy with the result, but the best part was watching the team of twenty-one 10-13 year old boys huddle around the cake with their phones taking pictures.  That was a great compliment!  Until next year...
