My daughter and I created this Halo Master Chief cake for a 5 year old’s birthday, though the kid isn’t allowed to play the game, he still LOVES Halo.
We used 2 1/2 10″ cakes and 2 1/4 8″ cakes with a dense cake. We began carving and shaping and then crumb coated. The whole thing is fondant covered. The shield is sprayed with a gold and the rest of the helmet was army green and sprayed with a light coat of silver. The lights were purchased at a Michael’s in the wedding section and placed into formed rice crispies. It was not as hard as it looked.
