ADo I use 2 or 3 of the 8x2"rounds under the sports ball pan? Thanks in advance
The Wilton sports ball pan is 6", so it's better to use 6' rounds below it...their soccer ball pan is 8".
When I made a helmet with the sports ball pan I used 3 - 6" layers below, but I don't think my layers were actually 2" high...
AI'm using the larger soccer ball pan.
I would use 3 - 8" layers then...
I use 3 = 10" and 1 - 6"
Hello there, I've been reading these forums all night trying to gather enough info on exactly how to do a life size Dallas Cowboys helmet for a grooms cake next month...I'm soooo nervous, I was hoping to pck your brain on exactly what I need to do, and to make matters more complicated, the bride wants it to be German chocolate cake with the the filling...I told,her I'd have to cover it in ganache or buttercream for stability. My main question is how many cakes to use? I'm thinking like 6 10" ( 2" in) then carve, would that work? Or should I use 8" pans and also try to use the soccer ball pan for the top...oh please oh please, let this work...I'm doing the wedding cake too, so I'm doubly nervous...any advice or tutorial would be greatly appreciated...and I'm available on email also, firstname.lastname@example.org.
thank you in advance!
I did a tutorial on how to make a helmet cake...I think I used an 8", two 9" and a 6". That gives you a narrower base and top.
Oh great, where can find the tutorial?
