  • Preheat oven to 350°. Line 15-1/2 x 10-1/2-inch jelly-roll pan with parchment paper or aluminum foil; set aside.

  • Combine cake mix with cocoa powder in large bowl. Prepare cake mix according to package directions; pour into prepared pan. Bake 22 minutes or until golden brown and toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 15 minutes on wire rack.

  • Run metal spatula around edges of cake to loosen; sift sugar onto cake. Invert onto clean kitchen towel; remove parchment paper. Trim off excess cake, if needed.

  • Starting at short end of cake, roll up tightly, jelly-roll style, folding towel into cake; refrigerate 30 minutes or until chilled.

  • Unroll cake on cutting board. Cut carton from Breyers® Homemade Vanilla Ice Cream with scissors. Arrange Ice Cream on it's side and cut crosswise into 8 slices. Arrange slices on cake leaving 2-inch border at one end of cake, pressing to form an even layer. Roll cake up tightly, using towel to help roll cake; freeze 3 hours or overnight. Freeze serving platter 30 minutes before serving.

  • Remove towel from cake on cutting board. Cut off all 4 corners to form football shape with serrated knife. Arrange cake on chilled serving platter; frost. Use white gel for "football threads".

  • For "grass", mix coconut, water and food coloring until coconut turns green in small resealable plastic bag; sprinkle around cake. Return to freezer until ready to serve.
