Coolest Space Birthday Cake Design

My son and I looked at lots of pictures online to get ideas for his Space Birthday Cake Design. We got a lot of good ideas from this site! I used gel icing coloring in sky blue and yellow to dye some homemade buttercream icing. I spread the icing with a knife and did not actually bother using any decorator tips or piping bags.

I used a lot of blue gel to get a really saturated dark blue for the sky. I did one corner for the sun with the yellow icing. I accented the sun with some yellow sugar sprinkles for extra sparkle. The sky is accented with some silver edible glitter stars that we bought at the craft store. Then I cut out stickers from a solar system sticker book and stuck them on toothpicks and scattered them around. I used a tube of glitter decorating icing to write the Happy Birthday.

We also have some star candles (not pictured). My son was thrilled with the results (me too!).
