The 10 best… football cakes

We’ve hit fever pitch this week – and it’s about time that we celebrated in the best way possible –  with football cakes!

From cake pops and cupcakes to life-size domed football bakes, there’s heaps of sport-inspired baking fun to be had – and they’re as perfect for birthday cakes as they are World Cup final celebrations! Here, we’ve tracked down the best football cakes and recipes we could find. Hopefully they’ll strike a goal – sorry, gold – with you!

Cupcakes

Football and grass cupcakes

A classic, but super-effective too. These cupcakes are easy to make and super delicious – and are a definite crowd-pleaser too!

Who said football cakes couldn’t be a bit jazzy as well? We love the combination of colours used in this bake – and would be as fun as a centre piece for a World Cup party as it would be for a birthday cake – for any age!

The elegant football cake

Football cakes and elegance aren’t typically words that you’d see appear in the same sentence – but that’s exactly what this cake offers. Delicate piping of green buttercream and flawless macarons atop of an immaculately finished drip cake would make this the perfect asset to any stadium’s VIP box.

Biscuits

Table football-inspired biscuits

The Biscuiteers do it again – we can’t imagine a better addition to the football-inspired spread than this selection of table football biscuits! Available to order, they make a terrific (and delicious) pressie for the football fanatics in your life.

Football and team shirt biscuits

We can’t help but see these as the perfect football party favour! You could even take inspiration from your favourite team for the shirts, or you could personalise to each guest for a super-special treat.

Football pitch biscuits

There’s arguably only so much you can do in terms of combining the theme of football with biscuits – but these rectangle pitch sugar cookies are great variation on the ball and shirt theme we’ve already seen. Ideal for adding a bit of colour to an otherwise very monochrome biscuit plate!
