My nephew wanted a Cobra Birthday cake this year. He is 7. I barely knew the difference between a prop plane and a jet when I was 7! Well, I didn't feel capable of crafting a "helicopter" into a cake so I decided on an LZ . A Heliport landing zone complete with Control tower and American flag.

I used 2 cake mixes for each layer. I used the leftover from the second one and made two small loaf pan cakes, which I used for the control tower. I faked little people (artistic license) into the windows of the control tower, facing the heliport.

I used Wilton's buttercream icing recipe with a little added cornstarch since the humidity is so high right now. After discussing it, we decided to purchase a remote control helicopter for the "copter" and wrapped the controller,charged and ready to go as the gift.

My nephew loved his Helicopter Birthday Cake.

My husband is in the army and flies in a Chinook helicopter. My son has been obsessed with them since he was old enough to understand that's dads job. I decided to do an army cake but I didn't wanna do just a plain ol' cake like everyone else gets. I made him a Chinook Helicopter Birthday Cake.

I took 2 bread pans and used them to make the body of the chinook. I carved pieced out and made the windshield and added on pieces to make the fuel tanks on the sides. I then cut a piece of cardboard to make the base to set the cake on and made the ramp of the heli. I used cookie cutters to prop it up and then added the wheels, and all the decorations.

He loved it!

This is the coolest. I want to make a groom cake for my soon to be husband and am looking for a helicopter. He is an EMS pilot. This is beautiful and helps to give me some idea.

This is a Chinook helicopter cake I made for my husband's birthday. I baked the cake in a 9x13 cake pan. I then cut it into the pieces I needed for the cake.

I used all vanilla buttercream and colored a tan color with Wilton food coloring. For the propellers I used Popsicle sticks that I painted black.
