Soccer Cake Ideas


Mark your favorite soccer fan's birthday with a soccer-themed cake. Or bake a celebration cake to mark the end of a winning season, to thank an inspirational coach, or to use as the centerpiece for a World Cup gathering. A soccer-themed cake could be in the shape of a ball, or a soccer jersey, or a soccer field.

Soccer Ball Cake

  • It's easy to bake a cake in the shape of a ball, or, actually, in the shape of half a ball: you can purchase a mold for just this purpose, but it's just as easy to use an oven-safe bowl instead of a cake pan to form the cake. Frost in black pentagons and white hexagons—the classic soccer ball pattern—and add a decorative inscription if you like.

    Alternatively, one layer of a flat round cake can be decorated in a black-and-white ball pattern.

Soccer Jersey Cake

  • Cake pans shaped like shirts are easy to find, and it just takes a little frosting to transform the cake into the jersey of your favorite player—perhaps the birthday boy or girl themselves.

Soccer Field Cake

  • A rectangular sheet cake becomes a soccer field with a green frosting base, plus some white piping. This sort of cake is also a good base on which to set some more elaborate designs. You could add upright goals, players on the field, referees, stands with fans, or whatever else strikes your fancy.

Badge Cake

  • Another idea for a sheet cake is to decorate the top with the club badge of the honoree's favorite team. Club badges tend to be simple yet striking designs, so this can make for a very attractive cake for an avid soccer fan.

Scarf Cake

  • For an unusual centerpiece idea that's perfect for a long banquet table, consider making a cake in the form of a supporter's scarf. These colorful items are a fan favorite, so this is a great way to show team spirit. To form this cake, simply take two rectangular sheet cakes, cut them in half lengthwise, and lay the sections end to end. Add fringe made of fondant or paper, and frost in team colors.
