I was asked to create a cake based on the American football team The New England Patriots by a friends girlfriend. I was so happy to be able to make the cake for his 30th birthday and we decided to go for a 3D helmet cake based on his team…

The cake itself was chocolate cake made up of 1 cake baked in a large pyrex bowl to get the curve, an 8inch round cake for this to sit on and a smaller cake baked in a pyrex bowl for the curve on the top. These were then carved into the shape of the helmet. The cake was covered in icing / fondant and then brushed with silver lustre dust to create the metallic shine of the helmet. The logos on the side are hand cut fron icing and the guard on the front is made from gumpaste, so that it kept its shape.

I was so happy that he really liked the cake, there are more photos in my cake gallery, so check them out!
