1/3 cup coconut oil, melted and slightly cooled
1/3 cup water
1 tbsp vanilla extract
1 box Simple Mills Chocolate Muffin and Cake Mix
1 tub Simple Mills Chocolate Frosting, at room temperature

  3. Pour into prepared cake pan. Bake in the oven for 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
  4. Remove from the oven and let cool for 10 minutes before inverting on a wire rack, removing from the pan and letting cool completely.
  5. Transfer to a cutting board and slice out a 1 inch strip from the middle of the cake.
  6. Place the remaining two pieces of the cake together to form a football shape.
  7. Ice the cake with chocolate frosting (warming it up to make it more spreadable) and refrigerate for 30 minutes until the frosting is completely set.
  8. To add texture to the cake, gently press a piece of paper towel over the surface.
  9. Using a piping bag or ziploc bag with corner cut off, pipe vanilla frosting to add the laces and stripes.
