Football Helmet Cake

This is our first Football Helmet cake. The mask is a 50/50 mixture of gumpaste and fondant. Unfortunately, I rolled the fondant too thick and by morning the top of the helmet was cracked all over, so I had to pull everything off and when I did the facemask broke into several pieces. So I had only two hours to go out and find a replacement facemask. After checking every store and sports store in our area I finally found one on a gag helmet at Spenser's Gifts. By the time I got back we had only one hour to refondant the helmet, attach the facemask and remake all the little accessories. But we made it in time for the customer to pick it up. I was still disappointed because her son's real helmet has a yellow facemask, so the one she got didn't match her son's. Oh well, at least we were able to redo the cake. I also need to work on the shape of the helmet. Thanks for looking!!!
