I’ve talked to many people that watch the many cake shows on TV now: the original fun cake crew on Ace of Cakes, the loud and lovable family on Cake Boss, Kerry Vincent’s scathing critiques on Food Network Challenge, and the tallest cakes ever on Ultimate Cake Off. What’s one thing I see that I always wish I could do? Welding.
Some people are amazed at the tools that custom cake decorators are using now. I love all of the possibilities that come with each new skill we learn. So I called my jewelry expert, the Weirdgirl, for help with the facemask on a football helmet.
We had tried once before using wire that wasn’t welded. There’s many great things about this Steeler’s helmet with the overall helmet shape and logos for the Steelers and the NFL. The face mask had the shape, but the connections of the wires were bigger without welding.
The Weirdgirl, walked me thru welding and the facemask on the Texas A&M football helmet came out exactly as I hoped.
Now I just can’t wait for someone to order the San Francisco 49ers helmet.
