I actually have to carve a football cake tonight. I was trying to cut down on waste so I baked two oval shaped cakes and two halves of the egg pan. I'll have to carve down the egg pan quite a bit on one side but I think the general shape will work along with the larger oval(s) in the middle. I don't know....I'm just winging iticon_smile.gif

I used a round pan and cut it twice to remove the center. Pushed the two pieces together. I had a dome from another cake I had baked earlier that day and put it on top. Carved a little and it worked out great.
