|MD - 11 airplane cake|
|UPS airplane cake|
The airplane cake sits on a triple chocolate cake decorated to look like a runway with butter cream frosting.
I had a few problems and will do things differently if I ever make another airplane. I will have to get a wooden base for the bottom of the plane, because the moisture of the frosting made the gum paste flexible and start to sink at the back.
I love a challenge and when I first thought of this cake, I did not think I could do it!! The more I planned, the more I thought it MIGHT work. I was still wondering this morning before I layered the fondant on!! Once it held together, my only worry was getting it on the cake and staying... Let's just say, pictures were taken quickly!! lol
