I want to bake a football cake and make some truffles for my wonderful partner's birthday

He supports real madrid so i'd like to ice them in those colours.

However, i despise football.
I have no idea what the colours are and google isn't helping me?!

Can anybody help?

There's no need for sarcasm.

Their shirt is white. With a tiny bit/stripe of purple or blue/ or black, depending on the season. It doesn't change much from season to season.

I made a football cake, for ds1. I think he was 3 or 4 at the time. It was VERY homemade. Quite crap really. But he loved it.
It was simpler version of this :

This cake is very easy. Make a basic round cake. Cover with white icing. Buy some black dye. Tube of it. Or mix it up. Paint the black bits. So very very easy.
THEN, you could do truffles sitting round the edge. And this is where you could bring in the purple , or the blue.
And the truffles, would take it to a totally different level. It would be fab.
Do you think this is a good idea? It is the easiest thing to do. And I can do it. So anyone can !!

You read my mind!

My plan is to have the truffles sitting around the edge of the cake.

Plus extra in a little box.
