How to Make a Football Birthday Cake

What you’ll need:

- Chocolate cake mix
- 9x13 inch pan
- Chocolate icing
- Tube white frosting

How to make it:

1. Bake the cake according to the directions on the box in a 9x13 inch pan.

2. Let it sit in the pan for 10 minutes after it's finished baking. Flip it upside down and let it cool some more on a wire rack.

3. Cut out the corners of the cake so that it’s a football shape.

4. Frost the whole cake with chocolate frosting.

5. With the white frosting, pipe in laces and lines.
