How to Cut Brownies into Football Shape:

The best way to cut brownies into a football shape is with a cookie cutter. But if you do not have this cookie cutter, then you can cut the brownies in a square then add the decorations.

Another option is to freehand the football shape into the brownies with a knife. They do not have to be the perfect shape.
