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.

I'm still a beginner to cake decorating my self. I'm sure someone more experienced could give you better advice, but since no one else has replied yet, here's what I would do:

Definitely use fondant. You'll get smoother results than regular icing (from my experience, anyway). If you need it, I can give you the recipe and instructions for making and applying fondant that works wonderfully for me! Onto your questions:

1) I would just keep adding and kneading green food color into the fondant until you get a color that you're happy with.

2) They make silver dust, which I think would be your best option for that. I've seen it at Jo-Ann's, but I'm sure you can find it at other craft/hobby stores too.

3) For the antenna, you could use a stick of Pocky. I'm not sure if they make white chocolate Pocky, but you can make your own easily. Just dip a skinny biscuit stick into some melted white chocolate and let it cool.
