I made a fire helmet cake for my sister’s birthday. She’s going to school for fire science and I thought she’d like a fire cake. I made the fire helmet out of fondant two nights in advance so it would have time to dry. I decided to make the cake a red velvet cake, to go along with the fire theme. Unfortunately, when I took the cakes out of the pan they fell apart on me. I had to perform some reconstructive surgery and cover most of it up with fondant. I was okay with the results but most importantly, my sister LOVED IT!
