Coolest Steelers Helmet Cake

I made this Steelers Helmet cake for my brother’s birthday Superbowl party. He’s been a huge Steeler’s fan since he was a little boy.

For the shape of the helmet I used a Wilton’s soccer ball pan for the top layer. I layered that on top of 2 8″ round layers. Then I carved the shape. Black colored buttercream icing was used to crumb coat first then a thicker layer was applied. I smoothed with paper towel.

The face guard and Steelers emblem were made with gumpaste. I made the face guard a couple days before by laying a water pitcher on it’s side forming it over that. I let it set for a couple days then when the time came I just attached it to the cake carefully, as it was very fragile. I made the Steelers emblem and added while it was still soft. Toothpicks were inserted to help keep it in place. Unfortunately the red coloring bled a little.

This cake was a huge hit at my brother’s Superbowl party. The guys went crazy over it.

  1. WOW you did a great job. I did a helmet cake but I used fondant. My problem was the face mask but I will try your idea next time. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Could you please tell me how much you would charge for a cake like that. If you could email me I would really appreciate it. I think your cakes are absolutely beautiful and I would love to make some of the cakes that you have shown in your photos. Keep up the good work and thanks for sharing!!! :-)


  3. Sorry guys, I’ve never charged for my cakes before and I haven’t bought one in years. I don’t have a clue what something like this would cost. I would say there’s probably about $15 in it but because I’m pokey it took me about 8 hours to bake and design it. I usually just make cakes for my family and friends as a hobby. Thanks for the great comments though. I’m so flattered.

  4. it came out really nice i will try this myself. i used 4 8in rounds and carved the mess out of them after buying a 19.99 video from yummyarts.com wish i would have saw this first.
