About a month before I started my cake decorating classes, I made this little ditty for my ste-son, Bowe's 14th birthday. He is a real sports nut, so I decided to make the cake fashioned like a football field. I used coconut with some green food coloring to make it look like grass and then made marshmallow fondant (1st time making it, it was a SIGHT!) to cover the football. All in all, it turned out pretty good for no real training yet! And Bowe loved it, especially since his piece of cake was the whole football!!
