How to make a Super Bowl Cake

First off; I scored a ton of free 3-D glasses at Target today which would have been the highlight of my Super Bowl prep had it not been for this cake!
Step One: Bake a Chocolate Cake; yes chocolate because it's the "dirt"
Step Two: Add grass - dye some white icing green; spread on and then add "textures" to give it the grassy look.
Step 3: Lay on Football - I just use a frosting piper to lay out the football and then spread together in the middle.
Step 4: Add Laces - Pipe on a some white icing for laces (note; laces should not get progressively bigger like mine do ;) )
Step 5: Lay out Field: Pipe on the parameters of the field; the end zones and the yard lines.
Step 6: EAT - sadly this step will have to wait till tomorrow

cute cake! am i supposed to know why you're excited about a bunch of 3D glasses?

Heather; some of the ads; or at least a movie trailer are going to be in 3-D during the Super Bowl; so I was all about getting my hands on some glasses; I found that Target was giving them way in sheets of 4 so I grabbed 12 sheets!

mike was lucky enough to decide to go to target yesterday and able to snag some 3-d glasses, but i missed most of the ads (all 3) because i was busy looking for some other 3-d glasses that we had, because the target ones were hurting my eyes. . . i also made some mini super bowl cakes. . . i'll post them and give you all the credit!

Very nice. We would like the SB a lot more if we had chocolate cake!

Heather said...

okay so i didn't get the whole 3D effect but the football guys doing ballet on the sobe commercial was super funny.

Hey, just wanted to tell you Congrats on being an aunt again!!! I just caught up reading on Timbra's blog and wanted to say a belated congrats. I guess it is actually an early congrats since the baby isn't here yet! Do you have preferences...another niece or a nephew? Not that it matters, I guess! :)
