Is there a tutorial or ideas on how I can carve a cake shaped like a football helmet?
I want to make 1 next weekend for superbowl. Please help me!
You can google how to carve a football helmet, www.coolest-birthday-cakes.com Sports and Recreation Cakes have some good pictures with tips. There is a very good 2 part tutorial on www.cakeschool.com if you are a member. Good luck! I will be making one for my son's birthday in a couple of weeks.
Every time I have done it I just baked a 6" round layer of cake and 1/2 the Wilton sports ball and then just carved out a little from the front of the bottom layer to make the helmet shape. The hard part is the visor. Just make sure you give the visor enough time to harden before you apply it to the cake or it will sag in the middle.
I like the dome pan from the Betty Crocker bake and fill set with 2 8" rounds under it.
