use gumpaste or fondant (if you have time for it to dry really well) for the mask and form it around a plastic pitcher to get the right shape.
I use a wilton ball pan for the mask it self. Make the ball cake, slice a little off the bottom so it will sit flat and look to have a flat bottom, then layer other half of ball on top. I let it sit for a while and then carve out a space in the front. for the face hole.
if you need something bigger you will probably have to stack cakes (like 3 9in cakes) and carve all by hand.
