I need to make a football helmet cake. I an not worried about the actually helmet part (using a half ball pan and a round cake) but I am not sure about the face mask part. I know enough to use gumpaste but I am wondering in anyone has any advice or a pattern to try. It just seems like it would be so fragile to get it to suspend off the cake like that and it needs to look just like the real thing. Any tips of suggestions would be appreciated....

When I made a football helmet cake I didn't use gumpaste, I made the guard out of florist wires wrapped together with coloured florist tape, that way it was more flexible so I could mould it as I wanted and there was no risk of it getting damaged
