Arai Helmet Cake

I hope you didn’t think that this is the cake i made!

I’m not that good you know. Hahahaha.

I made the cake based on the two (above and below) pictures that I have.

See, it was my dad’s 50th birthday and I wanted to make him a cake. My dad loves go-karting and this is his helmet! Cool dad huh 😛

I was concentrating so hard I didn’t take pictures of how the cake looks like before this! But yes, i was painting halfway!

This was before i put the visor on. I really wanted to paint on the reflection on the visor but was too chicken to do so – just in case i ruined it at the final part, i’d totally just kill myself with the paintbrush.

Finished making the cake at 1am and I was pretty pleased with how it turned out. I’ve never carved so much cake before! Haha don’t mind the ugly handwriting please – wrote it too small!

When I got home, I realised i missed out the air vents of the helmet! Hahahaha oops, but at least it still looks like a helmet.

I had no photo of the back of the helmet, so I painted in whatever I imagined it to look like HAHA.

Side view!

It was a lemon buttercake! I love it when I cut cakes like these because I get to see the pretty layers!

Happy 50th Birthday Daddy! Half a century old and still so handsome 😛 I love you!
