This was for a joint 40/30th birthday where both people supported different football/soccer teams. i did each player to look like the people (hair, glasses, etc) and put in the team colours with the ages instead of the numbers on the back of the tops. my husband made the goalposts out of plastic dowels and they are a great job. i made a gumpaste scoreboard and scarves to finish it. its ok, im just never pleased with football cakes i do, they never look special or neat to me. i guess i just prefer really pretty girly cakes.
