Superbowl Desserts with #CoolWhipFrosting #cbias

82 Flares 82 Flares ×

Will you hate me if I admit I don’t watch the Superbowl for the football? Please don’t, but it’s true! There are only 2 reasons I care about the Superbowl: the awesome commercials and entertaining friends and family. I don’t get football – the different plays, rules, penalties – all I know is when a team makes it to the end zone with a football they score. That’s enough, right?

This year I’m trying something different for our Superbowl party. Normally I make everything from scratch, which takes forever. I just don’t have the time to do that this year, so instead of homemade frosting, I’m going with Cool Whip Frosting. I’m using the Cool Whip Frosting to create a football stadium cake, and I think I have it down!Cool Whip FrostingI wanted to get some practice in so I headed up to Walmart to get the Cool Whip Frosting, which is in the frozen section with the ice cream. You can see my entire trip in my Google+ album.

I made a chocolate cake, lightly modifying (I added a little extra vegetable oil) the recipe for Hershey’s Chocolate cake. I left the cake upside down so I could have a flat surface to work with. Cool Whip FrostingI added a few drops of green food coloring to the Vanilla Cool Whip Frosting and spread that on the cake. Then I dyed 2 cups of coconut green and mixed that in with the frosting. The Cool Whip container was the perfect vessel for dying the coconut! The dyed coconut added a great texture to the cake so it was more AstroTurf like. My coconut was a little too dark, so I added some more Cool Whip to lighten it up.Football Stadium CakeThe next part is where it got tricky for me: the yard lines. I don’t have steady hands at all, so I’m going to have to get John to do these for me Saturday for our new cake. Since I made a 13x9 cake I had to reduce the amount of lines ( I did 50 yards, 30 yards & 10 yards.) I’m thinking we’ll be using pretzels dipped in dyed white chocolate to make the uprights. They didn’t want to work the way I tried, so hopefully this idea will.

Football Stadium Cake

Creating the football field cake was super fun, and sneaking a swipe of the Cool Whip Frosting now and then was even better. I love how easy it is to use. I let it sit out for about 10 minutes before using it. It loads in my icing bag flawlessly and comes out so smooth and delicious. Football Stadium Cake

I bought a mini football mold from Amazon and made football shaped brownies also. I used one of these as the center of the stadium cake. I’ll be frosting these with Cool Whip chocolate frosting for our Superbowl party, and can’t wait to hear what people think. We are definitely loving the cake – eating it was the best part!

  2. That is such a cute idea! As someone who also bakes from scratch, I also enjoyed the ease of having the frosting ready to go and not having to mess around! And you’re totally right, the containers are the perfect vessel for adding food coloring!

  6. Cute cake! I have been wanting to try the new frosting from Cool Whip, maybe I can make up something for Super Bowl Sunday…and I’m totally with you, I only watch the game for the commercials and the food!

  7. I guess it was only a matter of time before Cool Whip made a frosting. I use Cool Whip a lot on cakes and desserts. I’m going to have to try this one out the next time I’m at the store.
