Anyone have any suggestions as to which pan(s) to use to carve a football with the minimal amount or waste? I don't want to buy the Wilton pan, it's too big for what I need...
I'm thinking loaf pans?
Any input? I just need a cake that will have about 10 or less servings...

I used an oval and carved a semi 3d one. It worked without very much waste. HTH

Here is a preview of a tutorial from Susan Carberry from Yummy Arts. It's short but does show how she carves the cake.

That is what mine looked like, but I used oval pans and didn't have as much waste. But cake balls are always a good option for the leftovers!!!

That video is the bomb, thank you both! karen421, I was trying to eliminate my obsession to roll cakeballs, my freezer is so full of them I don't have room for regular food anymore!

The Wilton football pan isn't very big, really.

Oh wait. I have the egg pan which I shape into a football. Double duty!

Now that might be an option, cause I looked at the football pan yesterday and it's pretty big (in comparison to what I need)

The Wilton football pan only serves 12 (you said you need 10 servings, right?). It really doesn't bake up all that big. I made it for my son's 1st birthday & needed additional servings, so I made 6 little football player heads using the mini ball pan.
