Football Celebration Cake

Great Season Woodinville Falcons!!

 My son plays in the local Junior Football league and we here in Woodinville take our Football very seriously!  We've got a great feeder program in place for the high school with some wonderful coaches & volunteers that help the boys learn about teamwork.  This year my son's team made it to the Semi-Finals and we couldn't have been more proud of them! 
To celebrate we had an 'end of season' party which included some Dodgeball, snacks, awards & cake (of course).  I did a two tiered cake with a football on top.  For the tiers I used my 10 inch & 8 inch round pans and for the football I used the Wilton "Mini Wonder Mold" pan and sliced the bottom at an angle so it would look like a football landing in the grass.
I chose to do Marshmallow Fondant on the tiers because I feel it looks nicer,
but I did buttercream on the football to give it a textured look.... and buttercream for the
grass of course (I love that 233 tip... so cool!!)
I hope the boys enjoyed their cake, but most of all I hope my boy realizes that I'm his #1 fan...
...always will be.
