Dallas Cowboys Football Cake

I received a rush order to make a birthday cake for a son's 12th birthday.  Since he is a huge Dallas Cowboys fan, I gave a few options and we decided on a 3D football cake.  I baked two 9x13 inch layers of Vanilla Butter cake with Vanilla Buttercream filling, covered with Fondant icing.

The lettering was hand cut out, stenciled from the Cowboys font that I found online.  Wanted to make it look as close to Dallas Cowboys as possible.  Cutting out all of the letters, stars, and #'s from paper, tracing them onto the fondant & cutting them out with a petty knife took 3.5 hours, but it was well worth it!

Started baking from 8 a.m., let the cake layers cool, frosted the layers from 2 p.m., shaped the cake into a football, colored the fondant & rolled it out, cut out all of the letters, then assembled the decorations.  The cake was completed by 9 p.m.!

Happy 12th Birthday, Darius!
