Thx 2 cakinqueen for sending me the helmet instructions from ACD, even tho an ice storm knocked out my internet svc & I didn't get em until after I just gave it a whirl on my own. I wasn't happy with the way the face guard turned out (lumpy and too big!) & I wish I had made the helmet opening bigger - but oh well, it was my first try. The helmet is yellow cake - 2 6" rounds & the half sports ball. The base is a 10" choc/choc chip cake. All buttercream - the face guard is floral wire wrapped in gumpaste.
