I have a cake that is supposed to feed 15 and they want the Wilton Football cake. According to Wilton's page, it will serve 12. So, any suggestions on how to have a little more cake without being too much?

This might be a stupid suggestion, but would it work with the theme to add a few cupcakes?

You could bake another thin layer of cake, then carve to shape, under the football, so its deeper....if the cupcake idea doesn't work.

Set it on another cake.

Make the ball on a tee, the tee should give you a few more servings. Just carve it out of another small cake.

great ideas! Thanks so much! I think I may put it on a small, one layer 10 inch square (hoping it looks good). That way it's not a ton of cake, but still enough...and I can't carve to save my life haha!
