Coolest Master Chief from Halo Cake

My neighbor’s son wanted a Halo party for his 6th birthday. He wanted Master Chief’s helmet for his cake. We looked at a few pictures from the game and came up with this design.

We started with 2 9×13 cakes and 3 round cakes (each layer a different flavor). We stacked 2 of the round cakes on top of one of the 9×13 cakes and carved the back to make it even, we then carved the mouth piece of the helmet into the shape we needed. Then we cut the front of the 2 round cakes for the “plastic eye piece” to give it a little more shape.

Next we took the other 9×13 cake, stacked the other round cake on top, carved the visor part of the helmet and the top of the helmet. We frosted both pieces an army green except they eye part which was frosted white.

We used 2 yellow fruit roll-ups for the eye part, placed dowels in the bottom half so it wouldn’t crush, and assembled the cake when we got to the party. The girl who helped with the party (it was at a skating rink) knew exactly what it was. We got a lot of ohs and awes from guests on the Halo cake.

  1. For those who are not aware… Halo is rated “M” for mature audiences only and a 6 year old knows enough about it to want a specific character’s helmet for his cake…very sad.

    On the other hand, the cake looks pretty good!

  2. The cake looks great! I have a 12 year old who is in “love” with Halo! This will make a great birthday cake for him! Thanks for the instructions on how you made it.

  3. You did an incredible job on this cake! My 15 yr old son would love it! My 3 yr old as well!!. He sees his older bro’s playing the game. Don’t you hate it when people judge you and have to add their opinion? Don’t let the previous comment take away the happiness you had seeing your son’s face light up when he saw his cake :) great job!

  4. But I’m too lazy to make it.

    And so…it’s rated “M”. What a sin! My 9 year old son loves the game and if he grows up to want to kill aliens from another planet, so be it.

    Nope, we shouldn’t judge…

    I’ve even let my son have HALO parties with 8 kids. All their parents let them play it — and I’m talking about some pretty conservative parents too!

  5. Sweet cake! I’m actually thinking of making one for my friend’s little sister. She’s turning 10. I’ll admit, yes, it IS rated “M,” but so what, there’s nothing horrible about that game. I’d rather have my kids playing that than Gran Turismo or some of the other games out there.

    anyway, kudos on the cake! ^^

  6. Awesome cake! I have been looking for something – ANYTHING – because my 5 year old turns six next week and would love this! Yes – I said 5 year old. And by the way he beat the game at the age of 4 in about 6 hours total on his own. And yes, we are a conservative Christian family and I allow my children to play this game. (Don’t even think about GTA or Mercenaries or anything like that though!) Other than some bad language, which he hears on the school bus anyway, the game is cartoon-like enough with goofy looking aliens not to let it bother me.

    Keep in mind it was Tipper Gore and company who pushed so hard for the reworking of those ratings, but objects to the blocking of pornographic websites in public schools. What is that all about?

    Anyway – keep on being a good parent and cake maker! Thanks for the instructions!

  7. I must say I am very impressed with the structure of the cake. I am yet again astonished with this. I would gladly buy this cake myself for my son. Anyway, a very nice cake indeed. Full of talent.

  8. My 4 year old son is in love with Halo. When he’s not playing it, he’s running around “capturing the flag” and carrying a pretend rifle and what not. It’s all in good fun. At least there’s no blood and guts in the game.

    Cool cake by the way. My son loves it!

  9. Here everyone is talking about their 5 and 10 year olds and I’m looking at this cake trying to decide if I can make it for my 21 year old fiancee.

  10. Great cake. How did you make sure the top visor part of the cake not fall or droop? I will be working on a cake just like yours all this wknd!!!

  11. I used the cake cardboard to hold the visor on top of the cake with dowels in the helmet part to support it. I just cut the cardboard to the shape I needed.
