Coolest Jet Helmet Birthday Cake Design

I made this Homemade Jet Helmet Birthday Cake Design for my brother, he is a huge Jet fan. The bottom half of this cake is rice krispie treats, for support. I used 3 8″ round cakes for the top half and started sculpting. The filling for this cake was strawberries and whipped cream. I guess that makes it a strawberry shortcake.

The face mask I made out of gum paste that I ran through a clay extruder, and formed the mask on a small bucket using pins to hold it together until it dried. Just note if you paint gum paste it will soften up. So next time I would color the gum paste prior to setting it.
