Cake
1
box Betty Crocker® SuperMoist® yellow cake mix
Water, vegetable oil and eggs called for on cake mix box
Tray or cardboard (18x16 inches), covered with wrapping paper and plastic food wrap or foil
Frosting and Decoration
3
drops green liquid food color
2
cups Betty Crocker® Rich & Creamy creamy white frosting (from 2 containers)
Betty Crocker® black decorating icing (from 4.25-oz tube)
Betty Crocker® green decorating icing (from 4.25-oz tube)
  1. Heat oven to 350°F (325°F for dark or nonstick pan). Spray bottom only of 13x9-inch pan with baking spray with flour. Grease 1-quart ovenproof glass bowl with shortening; coat with flour (do not use baking spray).
  2. Make cake batter as directed on box. Pour 1 1/3 cups batter into 1-quart bowl and remaining batter into 13x9-inch pan.
  3. Bake 13x9-inch pan 21 to 26 minutes (23 to 30 minutes for dark or nonstick) and 1-quart bowl 26 to 31 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes; remove from pan and bowl to cooling racks (place cake from bowl with rounded side up). Cool completely, about 30 minutes.
  4. Cut off uneven bottom of cake from bowl so it will stand flat. Freeze cakes 1 hour.
  5. On tray, place 13x9-inch cake, bottom side up. Stir food color into 1 1/2 cups of the white frosting; spread over cake.
  6. Spread remaining 1/2 cup white frosting over rounded side of other cake for soccer ball. Place ball on green field. Use black decorating icing to create soccer ball design. Use green decorating icing to make tufts of grass. Store loosely covered.
