What You Need

Hershey's Gridiron Cake

Instructions

  1. PREPARE sheet cake. For chocolate frosting, stir cocoa into 1/3 cup frosting; stir until smooth. Set aside 2 tablespoons chocolate frosting. Tint 1/3 cup frosting orange with 1 drop red food color and 2 drops yellow food color; stir until blended. Tint remaining frosting green with 2 or 3 drops green food color; stir until blended.
  2. MARK "end zones", 2 inches wide at each end of cake, using wooden pick; frost one end zone with chocolate frosting and the other end zone with orange frosting. Frost the area between end zones with green frosting; mark 5 yard lines with wooden pick. Place white chips all across cake on yard lines.
  3. USE white chips to spell out "HERSHEY'S" on chocolate end zone; use brown REESE'S PIECES on the goal line. Use yellow REESE'S PIECES to spell out "REESE'S" on orange end zone. Use orange REESE'S PIECES on the goal line.
  4. REMOVE wrappers from chocolates and peanut butter cups. Arrange teams on cake playing field, using HERSHEY'S KISSES Milk Chocolates as one team and peanut butter cups as second team. Place HERSHEY'S HUGS Candies as referee officials on the field.
  5. UNWRAP caramel candies. Make goal posts in the middle of each goal line on each side of the field by using reserved chocolate frosting to stack and "glue" together 3 caramel candies.
  6. INSERT floral wire into each twist, bending wire and twist to form "U" shape for goal posts. "Glue" this section with frosting to top of each stack of ROLO caramel candies and anchor with portion of wooden pick pushed into top of each stack.
  7. NOTE: Goal posts are for decoration purposes only and are not meant to be eaten.
Variation

Use candy pieces to spell out names of your favorite teams.
