3-D Rough Riders Watermellon Helmet
What a fun project! The helmet is made from confetti cake which I colored green, layered with my Vanilla Buttercream. The whole "watermellon head" helmet is draped with fondant and airbrushed for effect. I wanted to include as much of the "Rider pride" theme as I could. The figure of "Gainer" the mascot, and the watermellon slice, is sculpted with fondant and gumpaste. The facemask is gumpaste. I added in some banners and flags cut from fondant. I finished up the board with buttercream airbrushed "turf", and lined with buttercream. ...... As just about all of my Wolfbay cakes, everything is edible! ($180)
