fire helmet

post #1 of 26
Thread Starter 
Hi all! I am looking for some inspiration for a 3-D firemans helmet. I will be making a "his" and a "hers" shower cake for Memorial Day weekend. He is a fire marshall and she is an engineer designing sprinkler systems for new buildings. I thought I'd make him a helmet and unless I come up with something unique i'll make her something more traditional. Any suggestions for the "her" cake? If anyone has any links to a firemans helmet cake i'd appreciate it.

Thanks
Debbie

Idea for the fire helmet. I did a cake that the cake was just square and the fire helmet is made from candy melts. Use a toy helmet to mold and rice paper for the emblem.

What if you baked in a rounded pyrex bowl and carved that out for the hat....maybe attaching a candy mold for the front part and decorating it? for her cake you could do a small cake and maybe put water drops around the side of the cake or something.

I was thinking of using my pampered chef bowl to bake in. Not quite sure how to do the rim or the front yet. I'm waiting for a picture of his actual helmet to copy the front. A chocolate transfer would probably work well for that.

Thanks!

..could you use a modified version of the rim of the cowboy hat you did to make the rim of the fire helmet? Also, for the woman...it seems to me that the idea of of a "shower cake" and "sprinkler system" could be tied together..just not sure of "how". If something hits me I'll let you know or maybe it will "spark" (no pun intended) someone else's creativity!!

I'm going to look for a play fire hat to use as a template for the rim of the hat. Thanks...

I can't come up with anything for the sprinkler system - I just keep thinking fire extinguisher and that seems more "his" than "hers". What do you think?

Light bulb came on...take a sheet cake, use fondant or something to make a blue print of a building that has a diagram where the sprinkler system is going to be installed and then on the sides have sprinkler heads on it with drops of water coming out of them.

That might work - do you think it would be "hers" enough for a shower?

Well, maybe to make it more feminine, instead of making the blueprint blue, make it pink icon_confused.gif
Have the sprinkler system be near the top edge of the sides and have them sprinkling flowers along the bottom. Including a pic here to help you 'picture' it in your mind.

OK...go to www.cakesbysam.com and click on cake galleries, then grooms cakes. Scroll down and you will see a fireman hat she did...yellow I think...looks really good, maybe will give you an idea of how to carve the cake or whatever.

Jscakes or Sgirvan did a construction hat. I can't remember which one did it! If you look in their galleries you'll find it. I'll see & then come back & let you know who did it~
