Football Field Frenzy

Recently, a friend of mine got married.  She asked me to be a bridesmaid and then a couple months later told me about her plans for a grooms cake.  Her fiance/husband loves BYU sports, especially football.  She was having the woman who was doing the wedding cake make a BYU football helmet and football.  She thought that it would be really cool to have a football field to put them on and asked another bridesmaid and I to do it.  So, here it is.

We ended up using rice crispy treats to make the cake.  It's 12 inches by 18 inches, so it took alot of rice crispy treats.  Since he does love BYU, I dyed the rice crispy treats blue.  Then I covered them with buttercream to make it smooth. 

It is covered in green fondant that I made.  I found some tiny cookie cutters to make all of the numbers and letters.  The yard lines are piped on.  The words Brigham Young and Cougars, I made by making some blue fondant and white fondant, cutting out the letters, and then stacking them on top of one another.

The center Y was made from a fondant oval, colored with edible marker and then a Y cut out and place on top.  Finally, I edged the cake with green buttercream frosting piped on with a grass tip.  The cake turned out great as did the wedding.  Congratulations to Courtney and Mike!
