I made this Homemade Super Bowl Cake Design during the Superbowl since I am not as interested in the game as my husband and family!
I used choc cake mix and since I didn't have a round or ball shaped pan I used a glass mixing bowl for the cake shape. I greased the bowl and poured the cake mix in the bowl and then baked! I then used a knife to cut out the shape.
I used the buttercreme frozen transfer for the emblems. I printed off the internet and traced with colored icing and a piping tip! I then iced each side of the cake with different color icing to represent each team color. I made some Marshmallow and confectioners sugar icing fondant and colored it and rolled it out with a rolling pen then I used a butter knife to cut it into strips and place in the middle of the helmet to cover where the different colored icing comes together. I used left over to cover pipe cleaner and shape for the face mask.
It turned out nice but unfortunately since I put so much food coloring in the icing to turn it black. The black Icing did not taste as good as the yellow. I was later told to put coco in the icing to darken it before trying to tint it black- I will try that next time I need black icing for something.
I am not a professional cake person, just started making cakes in the last few months when I needed to make something for my sons b-day party. Have gotten most of my ideas from this website! Thanks to everyone who posts ideas I have had fun trying them out.
My son is a Vikings fan and I decided to make him a Vikings Football Helmet Cake. The helmet is made with the round ball cake pan and sculpted a bit to resemble a helmet, crumb coated and covered in fondant.
This was my first attempt at covering something whole with fondant. Not as easy as they make it look. My son and his friends enjoyed eating the helmet. I love working with fondant, but don't much care for the taste. This is my third cake submission on this wonderful website. Thanks for posting them.

This WVU Football Helmet Birthday Cake was definitely a task to make but I think it turned out great. I made several round cakes and then stacked them with buttercream in between each layer. I then stuck the cake in the freezer to harden a little so it would be easier to carve.
Once carved I did a crumb coat and stuck back in the freezer while I made the icing and got it ready and the stencils. The guard in the front was made out of gumpaste and glued together with royal icing.
