This Rocket Cake was a practice run for my son’s 4th birthday. It wasn’t as difficult as I had thought it would be.
I started with a chocolate sponge cake which I split in half and covered with syrup and then chocolate ganache. The rocket was much the same though it ended up a little taller than it was meant to. Once the cake had been ganached I left overnight in the fridge to set.
The following day I applied the ready rolled icing, a lot easier than I anticipated. To secure the Rocket on the top of the cake I used a little melted ganache. Once the cake was complete I cut out stars, made a few planets and stuck on with a little water.
The board is a thin piece of MDF covered with black ready rolled icing. I used the little gold balls and gold edible dust to decorate.
I had a lot of fun and I must admit I’m pretty proud of my effort. Hope you like it.
