Both the ball and field were made from our heavenly red velvet madeira, filled and crumb-coated with rich buttercream, before covering with fondant icing.
The field markings were hand-painted with edible food paint, while the pentagons and hexagons for the football were cut out of black /white fondant. It was then finished off with a pipping of green-tinted buttercream for the field look.
The players and goal posts are of course plastic figurines to complete the scene. Our other flavours and coverings can be found here.

Here's wishing Giovanni a very happy birthday (once again).
