You use the Classic Batter Bowl to create a great 3D cake in the shape of a football. Scroll down for the “Barbie Doll Cake” and other shapes.

1 (18.25 ounce) box cake mix, any flavor plus ingredients to make the cake
- Pam /Baker’s Choice (oil spray with flour)
2 to 4 cups icing
Heat oven to 350 degrees F.
Any boxed cake mix flavor can be used. I prefer chocolate for the football cake. Prepare cake according to package directions in another mixing bowl. Spray a 2 quart glass mixing Bowl with Pam /Baker’s Choice (oil spray with flour), or greased with shortening and floured. Pour batter into prepared Batter Bowl, fill the bowl 2/3 full. Bake at 350F for about 1 hour, 10 minutes to 1 hour, 15 minutes or until the middle bounces back when you lightly press with your finger. (This eliminates dry overbaked cakes or having to stick a toothpick or knife into the top of your cake) or until Cake Tester inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 15 minutes on Cooling rack, invert. Cool before decorating. Frost and decorate as desired ( see below).
The football cake itself is pretty easy. Make the Bowl cake and cool it completely. Then stand it on the wide end (like you’ve got the bowl upside down on cutting Board) and cut it in half with a Bread Knife. Start at the top and just slice down to the counter. You’ll end up with 2 identical pieces. Lay them down on a cake platter or foil-covered board with the cut sides down and the wide ends touching. Trim the wide ends until a uniform football shape. Ice with chocolate or brown frosting and add the stripes and laces with white. Add green frosting or use green tinted coconut as the grass.
