I mentioned this yesterday but the last three days I have been making this airplane cake for a client that is a friend. I cannot show you all of it today because the lovely lady he bought it for doesn’t get it until this afternoon! But I can show you part 1.
The idea for the cake is a 3-D airplane over a Tarmac. So Lindsey, Riley, and I started designing and engineering the structure. We decided to make the plane from Rice Crispies. And the Tarmac the cake.
Shopping trip, cake supplies.
I started my screwing the new 2ft x 2 ft Cake board onto a previously made cake stand
Adding PVC plugs onto the base for the plane stability.
While I was doing this Lindsey started planning the wings and drawing them onto very thin plywood.
Next we started cutting PVC for the plane structure.
Lindsey started making rice crispy treats for molding.
And we set off to molding the plane….
By the end of our molding it looked like this …
But by the next morning it looked like this…
And even worse later in the day….
Come back tomorrow to see how we fix the airplane and completed the cake!!!
Part 2 tomorrow! I promise it all worked out for the best
