I used one cake mix box for this 6" football helmet cake. I used a small dome pan (the inside pan from the Betty Crocker Bake n' Fill set) and 6" round pan to make this. I stacked the dome shape on top of the flat round layer, putting a layer of icing in between,
To carve out the the helmet shape, I simply cut about 2 inches off the bottom layer. I frosted it with regular vanilla canned frosting which I'm not used to. That's why it's not so smooth! I prefer making my own buttercream, but obviously, store-bought is doable.
I colored fondant and cut out the team's logo for both sides of the helmet. Then I piped an outline on the logo using frosting. I used colored drinking straws for the face mask, snipping notches into the straw in the places I wanted it to bend and stuck them into the cake. You can use toothpicks to secure it.
For a larger helmet, you can use the larger dome pan with an 8" round pan for the bottom layer.
I made this football helmet cake for my nephew's Sr. high school football players and the whole team. It was to recognize the Sr. football players. I used 2 8" round pans, and 1 8" round Pyrex bowl for the helmet using a pound cake recipe. I carved the helmet out of the cake. Covered it with Wilton's choc. buttercream icing colored with super black coloring. Smoothed it with a viva paper towel.
The stripes and decorations are fondant. The face mask is 18 gauge floral wire formed and covered with black fondant. The picture of the boys is an edible image I had made at a bakery. The large cake is 2 11x15's put side by side, and covered with Wilton's buttercream recipe. I used a letter set to press the "Black Knights" logo onto the cake and covered it with buttercream. Used the grass tip to make grass around the helmet and pic.
The football players were thrilled with this cake and it was a great way to show my nephew how proud I am of him.
For this Football Helmet Cake I used a helmet molding pan from Micheals arts and crafts store. I actually filled this cake with lemon filling and then I let the cake cool and I crumbcoated it. I then laid the white fondant over it as the base and then I added the blue fondant and then the red. The NY is fondant that I cut out. The mask is also fondant that I colored grey.
I used water to stick the mask, letters, etc to the helmet. For the grass I used piping tip #233 and for the name, I used a regular writing piping tip (#4). The best icing to use for the grass to give it a stiff and realistic look is Royal Icing. It's very thick and is made for decorating.
I made this homemade football field cake for my nephew's 5th b-day. I baked a basic 9x13 cake and once cooled I trimmed the top to make it level. Using the trimmed pieces I formed the football on the top of the cake. Using the star tip and chocolate frosting, I covered the football. Using the same start tip and blue and red frosting, I made the end zones. I then used grass tip and green frosting and covered the field in grass.
I trimmed up the football and field lines with white frosting and wrote the Happy Birthday in the end zones. I bought the foot ball players and goal posts at a party supply store.
This Football Field birthday cake is covered with fondant.
Any type of cake mix can be used to create this field. I used Wilton green food coloring for the fondant and bought the players and goal post from Party City. The numbers and lines are made with white fondant.
This was a very easy and fun cake to do but it took me about two hours to decorate!
