Ingredients

1
box cake mix (any flavor*)
Water, vegetable oil and eggs called for on cake mix box
Tray or cardboard (15x12 inches), covered with wrapping paper and plastic food wrap or foil
1 1/2
containers Whipped fluffy white frosting
Food colors
  • 1 Heat oven to 350°F (325°F for dark or nonstick pan). Spray bottom only of 13x9-inch pan with baking spray with flour.
  • 2 Make and bake cake as directed on box for 13x9-inch pan. Cool 10 minutes; remove from pan to cooling rack. Cool completely, about 1 hour. For easier handling, refrigerate or freeze cake 30 to 60 minutes or until firm.
  • 3 Meanwhile, tint 2 1/4 cups of the frosting with food color as desired for your favorite team’s jersey color. Tint 1/2 cup frosting as desired for team name and numbers. Remove cake from freezer. Using serrated knife, cut rounded top off cake to level surface; place cake cut side down on cutting board.
  • 4 Place short side of cake toward you. Poke toothpick in cake at a point 4 inches from top and 1 inch from outside edge, on both sides. Poke toothpick in cake at bottom, 1 inch from outside edge, on both sides. Cut 1x8-inch piece (marked with toothpicks) from outer edge of each side. Cut each piece in half crosswise, forming 4 (1x4-inch) pieces. Cut neck hole from top of cake.
  • 5 On tray, place largest piece of cake. Using small amount of jersey-colored frosting, attach 2 small rectangular pieces on each side of top of cake to lengthen sleeves. Frost with a thin layer of frosting to seal in crumbs. Refrigerate or freeze 30 to 60 minutes to set frosting.
  • 6 Frost entire cake with jersey-colored frosting. Pipe other color frosting onto cake to create team name, numbers and shirt trim. Store loosely covered.
