  1. Grease and flour 13 x 9-inch baking pan; set aside.

  2. Prepare cake batter and bake in prepared pan as directed on package. Cool 15 minutes; remove cake from pan to wire rack. Cool completely.

  3. Trim corners and sides from cake to resemble football shape. Reserve trimmings for snacking or another use.

  4. For Chocolate Frosting: Melt butter in a large microwave safe bowl; stir in cocoa. Add powdered sugar alternately with milk and vanilla, beating to spreading consistency. Frost cake.

  5. For White Icing: In a small bowl combine powdered sugar, butter and just enough water to create a smooth consistency. Place in a small, self-closing plastic bag; snip off a tiny corner and use to "draw" the stitches of the football. If desired, place toy football toy decorations around cake.
