M M M Minnie and the Jet. Cake

I feel like have been making a  lot of cake as of late.  I made these two recently for a client who was brave enough to have both her kids birthday parties the same day.  I hope she survived.

As you can hopefully tell Garrett wanted a jet themed cake for his birthday this year.  I was a little surprised at how much I suck a sculpting a jet out of fondant.  In the end I think it turned out ok, but it took WAY longer than it should.  And in case you are wondering I did take the tooth picks out of it before I delivered it.  By the way the clouds are made out of royal icing and I love them.  Just use like a 5 tip and make little clustered swirls.


I am still trying to get the hang of properly stacking topsy turvy cakes.   I need to remember to have the top cake slant across the bottom cake not away from the bottom cake.



Minnie was also a little tricky to sculpt, but I think it took me less time to do than that jet.  I think from now on if anyone wants a jet cake there will be like a $1 million sanity charge.
