Super Bowl 50! Who are you cheering for?!
Each Helmet is yellow cake with vanilla frosting, rolled into balls, dipped in blue candy melts then piped with a mixture of white and brown candy melts for a skin-toned color where the “face” would go. The rest of the details were added using a toothpick with blue, white & orange candy melts.
I’ve gotten a lot of “A TOOTHPICK?!” comments, but I promise it was not as awful as it sounds 🙂 I knew these would be a bit difficult & time consuming, but I think it was worth it — they turned out pretty awesome in my opinion. The majority of the time, I thought my broncos looked like birds (the mouths got a little pointed and “beaky” on some), but after the rest of the details were applied & looking at them the next day, I think you can tell they’re not birds 😉
