Game Day Football Cake!

Because in the South, priorities are God, family, and football... I thought I would send you guys a recipe I have been holding onto for the start of this sporty time of year!! This way, you can literally eat, drink, and live football!

1 (18.25-ounce) package chocolate cake mix
1 1/3 cups brewed double strength Maxwell House Coffee, chilled
3 cups Cappuccino Pudding Frosting, (recipe follows)
Grease and flour 13 x 9-inch baking pan; set aside.
Prepare cake batter and bake in prepared pan as directed on package, substituting coffee for the water. Cool 15 minutes; remove from pan to wire rack. Cool completely.
Trim corners and sides from cake to resemble football shape. Reserve trimmings for snacking or another use.
Frost cake with Cappuccino Pudding Frosting. Store in refrigerator.
Makes 15 servings.

Cappuccino Pudding Frosting:

1/2 cup chilled brewed strong Maxwell House Coffee
1/2 cup cold milk
1 (3.25-ounce) package Jell-O Vanilla Flavor Instant Pudding & Pie Filling
1 (8-ounce) tub Cool Whip Whipped Topping, thawed
Pour coffee and milk into medium bowl. Add dry pudding mix. Beat with wire whisk 2 minutes.
Gently stir in whipped topping.
Spread onto a cooled cake or cupcakes.
Makes 4 cups frosting.

Variation - Easy Super Sunday Cake:
Bake cake and remove from pan as directed. Do not cut cake. Frost with Cappuccino Pudding Frosting. Just before serving, draw lines on top of cake to resemble yard lines. Place toy football players and decorations on top of cake.

Creative Leftovers:
Store cake trimmings in airtight container at room temperature. Cut into cubes, then layer with additional Cappuccino Pudding Frosting to make a quick-and-easy trifle.
