It’s fall which means it’s football season. Whether your little one is a fan of college football, the pros or just likes tossing the pigskin with their friends in the backyard, a football themed birthday party is something that they’d love.
But how do you you capture the fun and excitement of the game they love and infuse it into their birthday like a spa infuses that great fruit flavor into their water? By having an NFL star show up at the party. OK, that’s not realistic. So, for the rest of us, it starts and ends with an amazing football themed birthday cake.
We’ve compiled our favorites that you can make as the quarterback of your kitchen that will ensure that your kid’s birthday party is a BIG win for the home team.
