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.
