Superbowl Cake!

So every year we go to our friends house for their Annual Superbowl Party! This is the 3rd year we did a cake and of course the expectations were high! So my trusty husband came up with a great idea of making a cake to look like a football helmet! I thought it was a great idea but of course we needed to have the cake sturdy enough to hold since it was going to be big. When i say big, it was huge, at least 10lbs of cake. So i made chocolate and vanilla pound cake with an Almond buttercream.

The cake looked much better in real life than in my pictures! I think i need to upgrade my camera and get a better point and shoot.

Now you are probably wondering what the cage for the mask was made out of. My husband decided to take Candy cane and slowly heat it in the oven and then mold it when it was still hot. He molded it and then we covered it in Candy Melts.

Everyone loved the cake and hopefully next year we can top this cake!
