So here it is. Click here and you'll see more pictures of the helm then anyone could possibly want to. But do it anyway - the pictures are worth seeing. It was based on a helm that Frederich found on the internet and I think it's passed the Pennsic cake as my favorite cake we've done.
Several people last night said "Hey have you seen the helm on the commercial for Ace of Cakes?" To which I talk about the fact that we paused Tivo and frederich commented on problems with the helm (i.e. it should be longer here and more bowed there etc). Of course we had the advantage of a professional armorer to tell us the order that the pieces should be put on and where the rivets were supposed to go etc.
