Airplane Cake

Jackson's Airplane Cake 2012

This was a fun cake to create! It served as a spark for new and more detailed cake I had to start trying. Simple in some ways harder in others.

How I did it ~ Cake
This was the simple part, with a simple rectangle cake.

How I did it ~ Decorating
I made my favorite Butter icing recipe, and used food colouring to colour it a nice bright sky blue colour. For the plane, I got a foam sword, A foam bat with plastic handle, and a toy with those flying propellors that shoot up from the base you hold) I cut the handle off the bat, and used the “just above the handle section” and used that as the pilot’s domain. For the wings I cut the handle off the sword, and then cut holes through the sides of the body of the plane and slide the wings through. I secured the finished airplane to the cake. Then I iced the whole airplane in my grey colour. Then Black for detailing to create the front and side windows. I chose orange for the writing. Fun cake 😛

Sheep Cake

Jackson's Sheep Cake 2011

Here is the first cake I took on trying to have a theme. I really want to make all of my children’s Birthday’s really special because my Birthday Parties were so fun and family filled. I felt so loved and treasured knowing the time and effort my Mom put into decorating all of our birthday cakes, so my hope is to do that for all of my kids’ birthday’s!

How I did it ~ Cake
I made a round cake, for the body of the sheep. A square cake for the head, with a square porcelain bowl. Three Cupcakes for the two feet and the ears is one cut in half.

How I did it ~ Decorating
I used the star tip to cover the sheep’s body, ears and feet. For the face I used my flat tip with chocolate icing, and for the face I chose some specific candies for the sheep’s face. I was happy with how it turned out.
