Tackling a Football Cake with a Grass Football Field Cookie

Last week my son celebrated his 10th birthday, a pretty big one if you ask me. It may not be quite as special as your first birthday or even your golden birthday, but hitting double digits feels pretty momentous to me. To celebrate, I decided to let our son have the “cookie cake” he’s been begging for with a few additions.

The plan was to create a giant cookie football field with a football shaped cake in the middle. My plan was carried out with the exception of the field. Long story short, it was hot, I was tired and got lazy.

This delicious little masterpiece starts with a rectangle shaped chocolate chip cookie. I just used a standard cookie sheet that fit the cake board.

Next, I used one box of chocolate cake and one box of yellow cake in the Wilton Football Cake Pan. However, I made a total rookie mistake and forgot to spray the pan before adding the batter so my cake split right down the middle. Fortunately, it’s nothing a little icing couldn’t fix.

One big batch of buttercream and one hour of frosting later …. a pretty awesome football cookie cake was completed.

And my son was happy as can be!
