Arsenal team jersey is carved out of Orange Poppyseed cake, Soccer ball is Chocolate cake filled with choc fudge buttercream. Yumm! The 'grass' were piped green buttercream.
I thoroughly enjoyed decorating the soccer ball. Most people who have made this before said it was really hard to decorate and can take hours to get all the shapes right. It took me about 30 minutes to decorate (minus all the procrastinating and pottering around..)
I can't wait to make another soccer ball. It really satisfied my love for jigsaw puzzles :)
