Soccer Birthday Cake

This soccer birthday cake is very easy to make and even a beginning cake decorator will have this cake finished in under an hour. The most difficult part is the “grass” but Wilton’s grass tip would make it a whole lot easier.

Soccer Cake Supplies

  • 1 9×13 cake
  • Green frosting
  • White frosting
  • 1 hard candy (shaped like a ball)
  • LEGO or Playmobil Soccer set

Bake the 9×13 cake and frost with a base coat of green frosting. Then go over the base coat with the grass tip (Wilton 233) or a star tip to create the look of grass. Use the white frosting to create the lines on the field. Add the lego or playmobil characters to decorate the cake.

If you don’t have LEGO or Playmobil characters you can use popsicle sticks to create players. Color copy a team photo for your child, cut out each player and glue it to the sticks. It will take a bit more time, but the personalization is really fun. And if you are serving the soccer cake for a party the kids would have a fun time finding themselves on the cake!

Sorry for the grainy photos, I’m not sure what happened!


  1. Great Idea, I have a little soccer player that has a birthday coming up. Now I am in a dither to go with this, or a lego theme. He asked me to do MT. Everest. I think he just wants a really BIG cake. lol

  2. This looks so fun to make (and fun to eat!). The grass tip can certainly come in handy. I’m thinking a makeshift garden of flowers for a Mother’s Day cake, eh? If only I knew how to make flowers…

  3. Cute! I’m just about to go decorate a construction cake. I will definitely have to keep this in mind for next year 🙂

  4. I made a soccer ball cake once by using a round glass casserole dish. Not quite a whole batch of cake batter fit in the pan. Then I just inverted it on a plate, frosted it first in white and then drew on the black shapes using a couple tubes of black gel icing. It was not perfect since I drew them freehand, but it was still a pretty cute cake overall!

  5. The cake is so cute. I am too lazy to learn how to use any fancy tips, so I just color coconut green for grass. Love the Playmobil figures.
