Thanks A TON to thecakemaker!! I baked a 10'' cake and used the soccer ball cake pan (the one that is just half of it by Wilton) and torted it. The "brim" of the hat is cardboard covered in fondant and the bronze helmet patch/shield holder is fondant w/ Tylos covering card stock paper. The shield is fondant mixed w/ tylos to make it hard. We had the local FD over to celebrate w/ ou bday boy and they LOVED it!! I loved making this cake and I don't say that often about a cake. Enjoy the pictures!
