My lovely lady friend, @clearasmud, got married exactly a month ago. One of my wedding gifts was the groom's cake. And since she had a long engagement, this cake has been on my to-do list for awhile.
Her husband is a huge Steelers fan, so she requested a football helmet. This was my first helmet and it was pretty easily to make. The only thing that gave me trouble was the face mask. I made one out of fondant, but as I was putting it on the cake it cracked. I didn't have time to make another one, so I just used pipe cleaners. They were an excellent alternative.
