How to Make a Football Helmet Cake?

Making a football helmet cake is a bit tricky, especially the shaping.  You can just follow these easy 4 steps methods for a homemade one. 

Step 1: Mixing

If you want to make a soft, spongy cake, then mixing the ingredients is the most important part. First, you need to mix the sugar and butter as a base. Whisk it thoroughly until it makes a fluffy texture. 

Then it’s time to add the eggs. Most of the new bakers ask which one will be good for beating. I suggest that using an electric beater gives better results. Wait until it becomes super creamy. Now mix the flour and baking soda evenly.  Finally, add the milk and vanilla essence for a flavorful experience. 

Step 2:  Baking

As a football helmet cake needs several layers, I suggest baking in separate pans.  Take 2 pans and prepare them by adding cooking spray. You can use baking paper for nonstick pans.

Pour all the mixture into two baking pots. Wait a moment for it to set.  Then set the oven at 180 degrees. Your cake will be baked within 30-35 minutes. 

Step 3: Frosting

Don’t start frosting immediately after baking.  Wait at least 10 minutes for cooling. One thing you must notice is that whipped cream should not be overdone. Soft and perfectly done cream will take only 2-3 minutes to set.

Step 4: Decorating
