Hi folks. I am a cupcake decorator and don't have too much experience with cakes. That being said, I've been asked to do a helmet cake like this
Any ideas you can think of how I should go about decorating it? I also wonder if I should try to cut the cake in half to do a filling? I don't think it's really thick enough to do that.
You can torte the cake but it would be easier to bake two layers. If you want to torte a single two inch layer I would take a ruler and mark one inch up on the sides all the way around. I either use my Wilton cake leveler or a long piece of dental floss and pull it through the areas that I marked. Slide a cake board between the layers to remove the top. After you add your frosting dam and filling slide your cake back into place.
Thank you guys.
Yeah I think I"ll try using the star tip... seems like it might be easier.
Peanutbutter queen: I clicked that url you gave, but kept getting messages that they couldn't find what I was trying to look for? But stars would be a good idea. It is a lot of work, but if you are patient it will look really good.
