Hey everybody, i have a birthday cake to make as a surprise for a friend (his fiancée requested it)
He's very much into his mountain biking and i want to make him a mountain bike helmet cake.
i only have one question, how to i make the visor so its strong but thin enough to look at least a little realistic.
Do you think gum paste will do??
i would need to be able to attach it to the cake so im guessing ill need skewers in the visor part so i can stick it into the cake, Edible isn't completely necessary. here's the design im going for
or any other ideas on attaching to the cake??
I would dry the gum paste visor over a form so it has a good fit on the helmet. I think the visor is going to be fragile because of the size and how thin you will be making it. If the weather is not hot, I would most likely use melted chocolate to attach and give it a quick shot of freeze spray to hold it immediately.
Just an idea :)
