Last weekend was busy with cakes and I took a few extra pictures to share how they were put together! This was for a little boy who was turning 2.
I started with a 9×13 chocolate cake.
I cut the cake in thirds the long way – giving me 3 3”x13” strips.
I then used the above image to form the airplane. I did some rounding of the body along the bottom and also along the front. I also shaved some off the top between the cabin and the tail fin. I also shortened the back wings so they were shorter than the front wings. All in all, it went pretty quickly. I then threw a quick crumb coat on the whole works to hold in all the –- you guessed it! — crumbs.
The sky if really the limit for how you want to decorate the shape. I didn’t have a lot of time so I stuck with the white with colored accents. But you could easily do different colored wings and belly or more embellishments like stars etc. I added a few “clouds” along the edges to give the impression of clouds.
The little boy was pretty excited about it, so that makes it a lot of fun!
