Football cake sponges

What you need: Makes about 40 thin football cake sponges
1 cup cake flour
3/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup oil
1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar
1/2 cup water
4 eggs (separated)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Blue and green food colors
Football cookie cutter

Heat water and dissolve sugar. Let cool. Mix yolk into sugar water and beat until frothy. Sift the flour and slowly add it into the yolk mixture. Once it is combined, add in the oil and stir.
In another bowl, beat egg whites until peaks are stiff. Add cream of tartar, and beat it one last time. Fold batter from above into egg whites. 

You can divide the batter into equal parts and add food color. Pour the combined batter into two nonstick greased baking sheets. Bake at 350 degrees for 10 to 12 minutes or until done (when toothpick comes out clean).

Let the cake sheets cool. Using football cookie cutters, cut the thin sponges into football shapes. Decorate them with royal frosting (recipe here) to make them look like footballs. Enjoy!
