I am going to try and replicate Boba Fett's helmet into a cake for my boyfriend for his birthday in a few weeks. I am really excited about this and I want it to turn out well, but I have never made a fancy cake before. I am thinking of using a lemon cake (his favorite) and using a fondant type icing. My issue is that there are so many details in his helmet, it seems I would end up with a lot of extra icing that I wouldn't use.
My main concerns and where I am looking for some guidance:
1. How to get the army green color and
2. The silver colors are random, do they make a spray icing (I'm think icing in a spray can like paint?)
3. Any idea on making the little antenna thing? I might end up just using some plastic pieces for that.
