The Super Bowl is one of those amazing events that entertains everyone. For the people who love sports, obviously, it鈥檚 a huge event. Meanwhile, the people who don鈥檛 like sports (AKA me) watch for the commercials, halftime show and to be around delicious Super Bowl food. Come Sunday, your table might be full of tater tots, chili and nachos, but be sure to save room for these football jersey cakes.

These jersey cakes are a winning dessert for your game-day spread. They鈥檙e so easy to make, and you can customize the cake based on your favorite player. Who knows 鈥 they might even bring good luck to the game!
