Captain "E" Helmet Cake and Cookies for Ethan's 5th Big Day

My first time making such a great challenge - a semi sphere cake (half cut egg shape)
Actually I am working 5 days in a week now, so barely can squeeze any time to make orders especially fondant cake.
But I still try my best to reach my customer's needs, I know I will be able to learn a lot too from here hehe

Elaine specially design this cake and ask me to make it for his son's 5th birthday.
A very simple design but will show lots of mistake if procedure is not done correctly.
10'' chocolate mud cake with ganache filling and thin layer of fondant.

Well, the hardest part of making this cake is when covering the cake with fondant because of the round surface makes it to have lots of wrinkle and imperfection.
So I have to cover the ugly part with some decoration and ribbon keke

An additional exception that I also make him 25 pieces of cookies, my first batch of fondant cookies actually :p
I am pretty happy with the results actually. What do you think?
I think the next cookies order will be much much better :)

Guess what this cake is so heavy like around 3-4 Kilo due to the weight of mudcake, ganache and fondant.
Good thing is they all like my cake and cookies,  I think this order is worth of my time making it  along with another 2 cake orders this week :p
Happy Birthday Ethan! Hope you will love this cake :)
