With inspiration from Mary Kay of thepartyworks.com I was inspired to do this solar system birthday cake after my daughter came to me and asked for a solar system cake the week of her party.
I freaked out when I saw some of the cakes because I have never taken a baking or cake decorating class and thought the cakes I viewed were way out of my league. But I think we fooled many of our guest, they thought we ordered it. I simply cut out the planets, laminated them and placed them in order. Added a few stars and a shuttle!
