Airplane Cake

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!

  3. This looks great! Thank you SO much for the diagram. I love that this can be made from a 9×13 cake. I think I’m going to make this for my son’s birthday.

  4. How did you stack the body of the plane and the piece that is suppose to be the edge? I torted the one piece but it just doesn’t seem to go. Thanks
