Create the perfect fun cake for the Big Game with SNICKERS, Skittles and Starburst Candy!
Just because our favorite team didn't make it to the big game, (insert sad face) it doesn't mean we won't be watching, if only for the commercials!  We will be gathering with friends and everyone will be expected to bring food and snacks. Our neighbor is in charge of smoking some ribs, someone else will bring wings, and there will be chips and dips galore.  
I decided I would contribute a fun, Big Game Day Cake, using SNICKERS®Skittles®, and Starburst®.

List in hand, I headed to Walmart for my supplies. The SNICKERS, Skittles & Starburst are all found in the same aisle.  SNICKERS in the chocolate candy section and just a bit down, I found the Skittles & Starburst right next to each other in the bagged candy section of the aisle!  Score!

Now, on to the cake making!
SNICKERS, Skittles, & Starburst Big Game Cake
To make it easy on myself, so that I can also enjoy the big game, I bought a vanilla cake mix, a tub of vanilla frosting, some green food coloring and can of cupcake icing with decorating tips.

I baked the cake per the instructions on the box.  While it cooled, I emptied the tub of icing into a bowl and added the green food coloring until it was as grassy green as I wanted it to be. After icing the cake with the frosting, I delicately striped on the yardage lines with the cupcake icing using the smallest tip. (Okay, maybe not as delicately as I would have liked, but our friends are just going to dive into this cake no matter how uneven the lines are)
My mother-in-law then made up the goalposts using yellow pipe cleaners from my craft stash.

We then sorted out some Skittles and Starburst candy for the colors of the teams playing in the Big Game. I cut some SNICKERS and they became the field judges aka referees. We added more of the candies at each end zone to represent the fans.

I really like how it turned out and I know it is going to be the hit of the party! C'mon, wings, chips and dip are the usual for the big game, but a cake like this? Everyone loves #BigGameTreats, am I right?
