3D Football helmet cake tutorial? - Page 3

post #31 of 63
My helmets both had 3 layers for the bottom...

The soccer ball pan sucks...it's a pain to get right. I ended up filling the pan half-way only, using 2 flower nails, putting a pan of hot water on the rack below (in the oven), and using homemade bake-even strips because the edges get so crispy (since it takes over an hour to bake).

Should I do 3? Everyone was saying 2 so that is what I did. But they are both 3 inches high, so will that make up the difference, do you think???
Hoping to one day have a shop of my own!

You're welcome, but I didn't do anything icon_redface.gif...

It looks awesome!! You nailed it, baby!!...it looks just like the real one beside it!!

I love the shape and how smooth it is...did you use BC or ganache under your fondant, and what kind of fondant is that, by the way??

Love it!!

Oh, you did alot!!! Just the support and the information you gave me meant so much to me! That is why I love being in a caking community!!! I used BC under the fondant. The fondant was Wilton's mixed with some mmf and flavored with Lorann oil in Cotton Candy flavoring. Came out smooth as Ice without a problem!

Love it! I just commented on your photo, but wanted to come back and tell you your cake version of the helmet is better than the real one, lol!

Thanks for the positive comment, andpotts!! It was some stress for me, though. When I was done, I swore that I'd never do it again. But now, I am anxious for another order for one!!! Isn't that funny??? Actually, the face mask was less stressful than the carving for me. But now I think I may like cake carving even more!!

Hi:

Can you guys re-explain how to cover the floral wire in gumpaste so that it looks smooth. This forum was so good!

It's been brought to my attention that the link I posted on pg. 1 a year ago is no longer working, so the instructions for my little avatar helmet are here: http://www.cakecentral.com/cake-decorating-ftopict-613242-foofball.html
