Homemade Aeroplane Birthday Cake

Homemade Aeroplane Birthday Cake

My Dad was a pilot so it was obvious he should have an Aeroplane Birthday Cake for his 70th birthday! I also had the idea of having all his family as passengers so had pictures taken of us all looking in the correct position and had them printed on edible rice paper.

I drew out the shape of the plane pieces on paper so I could use them as a stencil when cutting the cakes. When the cakes were cooked I froze them wrapped in baking paper then they were easier to cut and ice.

I found some cloud wrapping paper which I covered over a large chopping board then covered that in white baking paper. This made it easy to wipe away any icing.

Finally I cut out the passengers, put them on the icing and iced around them to make windows. The cake was enjoyed by all and of course everyone had to eat themselves!

Aeroplane Birthday Cake

Aeroplane Birthday Cake

It was fast approaching my son`s 2nd birthday and as we didn`t have a clue what he really likes we were stumped. Then it came to us whenever he visit`s my sister`s he just loves watching the planes at a local aerodrome so the seed was sown, we`d make an Aeroplane Birthday Cake for him, then came the question 'but how?' So after long searches on the internet we decided to go solo and make it from scratch.

It took 2 8" square sponges and some careful cutting and we arrived at this cake you see here.
And the whole family were wowed by it and yes even me!! As its something I never thought that I could do.

Thank you so much for the idea. My Grandson is 2 next week and having just been on an airplane for the first time, is airplane crazy - so your cake idea is perfect for him. So your cake has now flown to South Africa!

I made this B-2 Stealth Bomber Birthday Cake Idea for my husband's birthday. I wanted to make some kind of airplane and this one seemed easiest due to the straight lines and minimal sculpting.
As long as you can pull up a picture of the real thing as a reference, it's very simple.

Bake your cake in a 9x13 pan, be sure to use plenty of non-stick spray so your cake will come out of the pan in one piece. I made a sketch on paper first, cut it out, and used a knife to trace it onto the cake before I made any cuts.
I used a few cake scraps to make the 3-D elements.

Coolest Fighter Jet Birthday Cake 28

Homemade Fighter Jet Birthday Cake

Homemade Fighter Jet Birthday Cake

My son is a huge Top Gun fan. He wanted a Fighter Jet birthday cake. I modeled the cake after one of his toys by freehand drawing half on a folded sheet of newsprint cut to fit the pan. I then cut it out and placed it on the cake and cut accordingly.

I used the leftover cake to form the raised cockpit and vertical stabilizers. I decorated it using homemade icing colored with shades of blue from Wilton's icing colors. I created the jet smoke from using white icing on the pan - no cake under it.

Overall, it was a very easy cake!

Homemade AWACS Plane Cake

Homemade AWACS Plane Cake

This was an AWACS military plane cake for a birthday/ going off to work in party. Came in at three feet long with an almost three foot wingspan.

Weighed about thirty pounds. Used cake for the fuselage and rice crispy treats for the wings, tail and radar.

I was referred to this person from a friend. Their son was going off to work on the AWACS and they were having a going away party. They wanted a cake with his name, etc. etc.. I told them I could make the plane if they wanted, and they were like, wow you can do that? A little research and some math to scale the plane down to a 1/63 scale and voila. It ended up being three feet long and tipped the scales at about thirty pounds.

Wow

My husband flies on the E-3 too. My son wanted a cake like just like Daddy's plane. Mine didn't turn out nearly as good as this - wish I'd seen yours before doing mine :-) Rice Krispy is a great idea :-)
