Easy Football Cake For Your Next Football Party

We love to make our own ice cream cakes, but I would have never thought of making a gigantic chocolate chip cookie into an ice cream cake. Thankfully, I Love Ice Cream Cakes thought this one up for me with the NEW! Carvel® Ice Cream Cookie Cake. I Love Ice Cream Cakes showcases delicious frozen ice cream cakes for all occasions, in many different styles and sizes, available in the bakery or freezer aisles in grocery stores nationwide. This handy Product Locator makes it easy to locate Carvel® Jon Donaire® , or  OREO® cakes in your area. Easy Football Cake For Your Next Football Party


Transform your Carvel® Ice Cream Cookie Cake into a football cake with a little fondant. I have never worked with fondant before but found these pre-made fondant colors so this was a no brainer in my mind. Using fondant, create a football to adorn the already amazing Ice Cream Cookie Cake  we found at Wegmans right here in Richmond. 

How to make this football party desserts

Before rolling out your fondant in between wax paper, measure your cake and then make your template. I did not and had to make some last-minute adjustments! All you need to attach the different color fondant pieces is a dampened pastry brush.

Create the football ahead of the party, but just be sure to wrap it carefully in plastic so it does not dry out.

When you are ready to serve your football party desserts, simply take out the Carvel® Ice Cream Cookie Cake and attach your fondant football to the top. Your Ice Cream Cake needs to sit out a few minutes before slicing, so this works out perfectly.
