As you can see the cake came together great!! But I will finish taking you through how we got there!

Yesterday we left off here…

I pushed it back up and started on a new one! Luckily I was semi prepared for this outcome. So I added two more couplers and plugs and screwed the same plywood used for the wings onto the PVC plugs. (I hope that makes some sense)

After making more rice crispies I started molding the new plane!

Once I was satisfied with that, it was finally time to frost and fondant!! Here’s a nice thin layer of buttercream to help smooth everything out

(Sorry I didn’t get pics of the assembly but you can still see everything Lindsey and I did to make it come together.

We put the plane on, iced the grass around, painted the base fondant, and added the Birthday girls name!
