Airplane cake part 1

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.

By the end of our molding it looked like this …
