A favorite team? Favorite player? The football cakes can be created to please the most discerning football fan. The most popular football themed cakes seem to be the football shirts of a favorite team. The name on the back of the shirt and the age is a great way to personalise the cake, and to make the cake extra special a caricature of the birthday boy or girl can be added to sit on the front of the cake! Alternatively, why not consider a round football cake, much like the one in the gallery below that I made for Harry Redknapp’s 60th birthday (This cake was commissioned by the sun newspaper). Other options might include the mascot of your favorite club, or maybe even a football stadium cake!
If you need a football cake to be a centre piece, but also need to feed a lot of people, you could consider matching cup cakes with the logo of your favorite team. Or simply just the colours of the team kit with the birthday boy/girl age on.
