Airplanes and Circles

Posted by Jennifer at 6:15 PM
Now you might be thinking, "well now, what is that?" Let me explain. So Emily was getting married and wanted a unique Groom's cake. She and "Sharky" had a specific memory they were trying to recreate with this cake. This is an airplane strip in the middle of the desert with cracked mud all around. I cut out individual pieces of "cracked mud" (fondant) and pieced them together in order to create the textured look. I sculpted the plane out of styrofoam and then covered it in fondant a number of times in order to get it to look exactly like the Cessna they were looking for. There were two very hard parts of this cake. 1) The cake was over 2 feet wide and over 1 1/2 ft long. It was giganto. Without the cake base, it covered the entire top shelf of my fridge with very little room to close. 2) That plane did not want to stand up. You can imagine trying to hold up the weight of a plane on 3 little legs (planes are weird that way). In the end, it all worked out beautifully.

After making that huge cake, I decided to slow it down and make a simplistic design for my future-mother-in-law's birthday cake. Simple. Ah, you gotta love simple.

Future mother-in-law? How far into the future are we talking? You can delete this comment if you want... ;)
