Football Helmet Cake Tutorial

I wanted to make a football helmet cake but I wasn’t quite sure where to begin. I looked everywhere and found very little help. So I decided to make my own. It’s my first football helmet cake…be kind : )
Step by step can by found on the following link… I hope it’s helpful.




WOW! Thanks for this. I had the same problem when I had to make a foot ball helmet cake last year. Love how you did the face guard. I tried to make mine like yours but failed! LOL You made it look pretty easy. Did you use a clay extruder?


Thanks SweetBuds…I have to tell you, while I was rolling out the gum paste/fondant for the face guard I sure was wishing I had a mold : )

Thank you CW!


It came out GREAT~~~ I was wondering how did you make the face plate? I have a cake like this coming up and I’ve never done one before?


Hi Kitty, the face guard is 50/50 gum paste and fondant. Rolled out and set to dry. One in the shape of a U the other a C. The size will depending on how large/small your cake is. I hope this help and share when your done @ I’d love to see it :)


Excellent :-)!!!!

This is amazing. I’m trying to talk myself into making this actually 2 for my twin boys birthday. The face mask is perfect. Did you have a template or something for guidance?
