    Was very pleased with my first visit to cakes by Deborah last week, a little unsure about what I needed, I got some excellent advice and was able to make the perfect cakes to keep the family entertained!

    Will definately be visiting again soon and recommending to my baking friends!

      Hi Karen, Thank you for your question. When I do a helmet cake I use a round cake cut in half and place them cut side down sandwiched together, it is then just a case of trimming one end into a dome and coating it. I hope this was of some help. Should you require more help please feel free to pop into the shop and see us.
