To pathetic not to share

Our attempt at making a football cake last night didn't go as well as we thought it would. In the beginning we were going for something like this...

And because someone (aka my brother) was insistent that there be two layers with chocolate frosting in the middle our original plan was to make two 9x13 cakes, combine them with frosting in the middle, and then cut and shape them into a football.

We got started late, the game was starting, we were on a time crunch, we tried modling the cakes while they were still hot, and this is what we ended up with...





For a while there we thought we could salvage it-but in the end we realized it was a loss cause. But never fear-it was still delicious and we enjoyed it-despite the fact that it looked a little bit like a big pile of poo in the end. 


Happy Friday and a long weekend to everyone! May your kick-off party desserts fare better than mine.
