Easy Soccer Birthday Cake

The last time I visited a bakery I was surprised by the price of birthday cakes. Even the seemingly simple sheet cakes with character decorations on top sold for around $ 100. Whoa!

The design for this simple soccer cake comes courtesy of Jennifer in Sugar Spice and Glitter. She helped me put everything together Kids soccer birthday party under $ 50. (That's half the price of some of those "fancy" birthday cakes I saw … for a whole party!) Be sure to check out Jennifer's collection of 10 cakes that kids can make for more inspiration.

The best part of this simple football birthday cake is that you don't need any special supplies to make it apart from a large cake pan! If necessary, use a ziplock bag as your piping bag and a butter knife instead of the offset spatula. (We love our offset spatula though because it makes icing desserts so easy!)

A plastic bag makes drawing the lines on the soccer field very easy. We cut the end of the pastry bag to be as wide as a pencil.

However, you can also use a regular ziplock bag for this step in a pinch – just cut the corner to place your frosting on.
