  • 3 boxes cake mix
  • ingredients on the box for each cake (oil, water, eggs)
  • 3 cans frosting
  • 1 jar sprinkles
Preparing the cake batter:
Follow the instructions on the cake mix box or use your favorite cake recipe to prepare the batter.Grease the pans generously with Crisco. Divide the batter evenly between the 14″ round pan and the soccer ball pan.
Baking the cakes:
Preheat your oven to the temperature specified in your cake recipe or on the cake mix box.
Place both pans in the oven and bake according to the recommended time and temperature for your recipe. Keep an eye on them and use a toothpick to check for doneness.
Assembling the bottom cake:
Remove each cake from the pan. Using a serrated knife, cut off the “bloom” that formed no the top of the cake while baking.
Place the 14″ round cake on a piece of parchment paper and frost with your favorite frosting. I used chocolate. This is called your “crumb coat”. This helps seal in any loose crumbs and creates a smooth surface for the final layer of frosting.
Place the 14″ round cake on the cake board or serving platter, which will serve as the base of the cake – I flipped my 14″ round pan upside down and covered it with aluminum foil
Assembling the “hill”:
Remove the cake from the soccer ball and cut off the “bloom” with a serrated knife.
Place the cake right side up on the 14″ round and apply a thin layer of frosting over the cake (crumb coat)
Once the crumb coat is applied, let it set for a few minutes. Then, pipe the green grass frosting on using a piping bag and a #19 or #32 cake tip.
