i am trying to do a birthday suprise for a co-work and make him a football cake but do not want to go out a football pan just for one cake.....is there anyway to shape one myself and if so how.....
Sorry no one has been able to help you w/this.
Do you have any oval shaped pans? That would be a start; then just carve a bit from the ends to make it more pointed.
Other than that bake a sheet and using a paper pattern, cut the shape. If you put the cake into the fzr for about an hour it iwll be easier to carve.
You want it *very* cold, but not fzn solid.
Oh take the cut away cake & mix w/b'cream; pile it on top to help get the rounded shape you need.
thank you so much for your help. if it works will take a picture and post it.
You could also use a sheet cake and make the football field alone, or put the football in the center of the cake.
I made ine like that for my son. I'm not the best decorater, but it didn't turn out too bad.
thats not a bad one idea either....thank you so much...so glad i found this site...
