Football and Soccer Themed Cakes

by samsara

Want to do a soccer of a football cake and cupcakes for your child? Here are a few ideas on how you can make and decorate your cake!

Sports are very important for a child and if your kid enjoys either football or soccer you can surprise him or her with a sports theme party or just a ball birthday cake! You will find cakes that take little effort to make and cakes that require some skills. We will start off with the easy ones!

Simple ball cake

The simplest way to do a soccer or football themed cake or cupcakes it to make the ball. Use the round cake pan, bake the cake and frost it accordingly. These cakes will take little time, require only basic skills and you can even have your child help you.

Playing field cake

Another simple cake project. Use your square baking pan, make your favorite cake or biscuit, frost it (I suggest green) and decorate with candy or with colored food paste. You can also purchase football players cake toppers to make this cake look great!

Let's have a football match!

Correctly shaped football

This is another easy one to make although you will need a football shaped baking pan in order to make it perfect! When finished baking just frost it with brown (chocolate yum!) frosting and draw the ball stripes with cream. If you are on a crafty side you can make it yourself!

The advantage of these helmet cakes is that you can decorate them to match a favorite football team of the birthday boy or girl!
