My boyfriend eats, sleeps, and breathes football, and he is in three or four fantasy football leagues each year. For the 2015 football season, he was the champion of one of them, so I wanted to do something really special for him.
I went to a party supply store and bought a football-shaped cake pan. I baked a cake in the pan, and I covered the cake with coconut pecan frosting (which is dark enough to resemble a real football). I used white frosting to make the lines on the football. I also put a football candle on the top of it. I had a shirt custom made for him that said „2015 Fantasy Football Champ”. I bought a piggy bank and wrote „Fantasy Football Winnings” on it.
I went to store and got two poster boards that were cut in a star design. I wrote in black marker „2015 Fantasy Football Champ” on one, and on the other one I wrote „You’re an all star! Congratulations baby!” I got football confetti – little gold helmets and footballs – and I glued them (in alternating sequence) to each point on both stars. I put the shirt and the piggy bank in a gift bag, and when he came home I presented him with the cake, the gift bag, and the two stars.
He loved it!! He put the T-shirt on and had me take a picture of him with all his gifts, which he sent it to all of his football friends. He was extremely excited and blown away. He couldn’t really celebrate his win with his buddies because they were sore losers, so he loved that I made a big deal out of it.
And he said he’s gonna wear the shirt to the fantasy football draft next year!
