Airplane Cake

Airplane Cake

My son wanted an airplane cake for his 6 birthday. He specifically said he wanted a plane landing on the road made out of icing. So I baked a 11 x 15 cake. I put icing over the whole cake first then I took a toothpick to mark an air strip out with the large icing tip I piped out black icing for strip,then took Wilton large spatula dipped it in cup of water and then smoothed the icing out this also gave it a shine.

Using tip #47 for straight yellow lines then tip # 103 for the slanted yellow lines. In order to make the plane look as if it was landing I took 2 toothpicks for each end and taped them together making one side longer than the other. On the bottom side of the plane were screw holes I took just a tiny peace of handi- tacki, stuck it in the holes securely, then placed toothpicks in there. Then placed onto the cake.( Note: Do not place airplane on til you have cake to its party place.)

I took coconut dyed green w/ food coloring for the grass then placed sugar flowers in it. My son was so proud of his cake. It was a big hit. I enjoyed making it.

Are those real metal cast planes at the top? Or are they toppers?

Homemade Airplane Birthday Cake

I used a turkey roasting pan, little larger than a 9x13 in pan and deeper. Filled pan with 2 boxes of white cake mix made to manufacturers recipe to make this Airplane Birthday Cake.

Cut cake in half lengthwise, one side wider than the other. Left the wider length for the body of plane. The slimmer side was sliced in half creating a rectangle and square, both of which are sliced diagonally.

Rectangle diagonals become wings. Square diagonals become tail. Rice krispie treat was used for standing tail. I also used a rice crispie treat for cockpit for some height.

Made 3 batches of buttercream icing and used Wilton Star tip. Small portion colored black for windshield and small portion for blue.

Coolest F16 Airplane Cake 23

Homemade F16 Airplane Cake

Homemade F16 Airplane Cake

I made this F16 airplane cake for a coworker who was moving to Italy for a job related to F-16s. I cut the shape out of a 12x18 sheet cake. I didn't want to waste the rest of the cake so I made an Italian flag and an American flag cake too, out of the excess cake.

I also cut a piece of the excess cake for the tail and the canopy. I put the USAF logo on one wing and one side of the tail. I used a Rolo candy and covered it with orange icing for the afterburner.

First I drew the outline of the plane onto a large sheet of paper. (I used wrapping paper to get a big piece) After baking the 12x18 cake, I put the paper airplane on top and cut the shape of the airplane out. I used some of the excess to make the vertical tail fin and the canopy. Then it's just a matter of frosting it. I did the star tip frosting because I didn't think I could get it smooth enough to look good otherwise.

Homemade Airplane Disaster Cake

This Airplane Disaster Cake was made for my friend's son who was leaving his job and starting to train for air traffic control. They have quite a dark sense of humour and thought this was really funny.

The airplane is a Madeira cake, and the life raft was made out of fruit cake. The message on the board said and Sean felt his first day had been a huge success!
