Make These Delicious Soccer-Themed Desserts for the World Cup

This summer, the world will be watching as the best soccer teams make their way to Brazil to compete in the 20th FIFA World Cup.

With a sporting event this big, and almost every major country represented, there are bound to be some amazing show-downs. If you are planning to gather fellow soccer (or, ok fine, football) fans to watch the games, then why not also prepare some delicious desserts?

These are some of my favorite soccer dessert finds that not only sound delicious, but will really get sports fans geared up for game day. I mean, who wouldn't love cupcakes, cookies and cake all in  fun soccer shapes?! The more creative the better, I say.


  • These little guys are chocolate covered Oreos. Repeat: delicious Oreos, covered in chocolate, and decorated to look like soccer balls! An adorable treat for any day, these cookies would be just perfect for a World Cup watch party.

  • Soccer cookies all around! These fun and colorful cookies were originally created for a birthday party but I think they would also make a great showcase at a World Cup watch party. They are a basic sugar cookie recipe with some pretty creative frosting decorations to create the soccer ball pattern.

  • Sure, you could go the traditional cake pop route, but these soccer player pops bring a whole new level of creativity to this popular dessert. Dress each of the cake pop 'fans' in a different World Cup team's jersey colors and present them on a 'turf' centerpiece.

  • This World Cup soccer ball cupcake featured on The Cupcake Blog shows just how creative you can get with a little bit of frosting and a lot of patience. Bring these guys to the dessert table on game day and you'll be sure to impress fellow fans.

  • Now THAT is a soccer cake! This meticulously designed soccer ball cake was created by blogger Keepin' It Boy and showcases some pretty amazing baking skills. She provides a step-by-step tutorial and a guide for creating those fondant shapes to help you create your own.
