I've seen you photos, you can do it. The carving really isn't so bad. I didn't have a ball pan so I just carved mine from a stack of 8" rounds and even that was ok. If you use a ball pan, then you really just have to carve the front out a bit. It also might be easier if you just cover it in buttercream rather than trying to wrap fondant around an odd shape. Do a test run if you have time and see what works for you.

heres a great pic that a recent cc'er posted, I love it...she gives some details in her photo comment for that pic. I know you dont have 5 days to do the mask part but its just too cool:

This is a great post! I am new on the site and this is JUST what my nephew wants for his 10th birthday! (now to figure out the Patriots and the Vikings Logos...)

Will this post now be marked in my history? Because I have had nothing but trouble finding it to start with. Just being new and confused!

Hi Everyone!
I used the amazing KittisKakes tutorial and created the mask for a cake for my husband for tomorrow. I did the mask over a week ago and it has been drying. I tried to move it, or see if it was ready to be moved and one of the side bars snapped off! I have not been able to get it to go back on. I dont have tylose over here and really need some advice ASAP on how to fix this one!

Since it's not going to be eaten, you can use regular glue...that's what I had to do for the face-mask in my avatar pic.

Hi,

I tried making the football helmet face mask last night and it was hard for me to assemble on the rounded canister. How do you get the "logs" on the end to stay in place on the rounded canister? Is there a quicker way to get the 50/50 gumpaste and fondant to dry faster (like can i put in in the refrigerator)? thank you.
