Airplane & Hangar Cake

This past weekend I finished up a birthday cake for a 1 and 3 year old. The request was an airplane and I stepped it up with a Hangar cake too for the 1 year old to use as his "smash" cake.

I made the propeller out of white chocolate. I tried to make the cake look like the airplane was looking to land and that it was flying through the clouds.

A view of the birthday greeting.

Back view of the plane.

Here you can see that the plane is elevated above the half sheet cake.

Close up of the plane.

I put the kids' last name on the plane.

Another back view showing the "bushes", "trees" and "clouds".

Full back view of the cake.

And finally, a view from the top. All of the cake was made with a white moist cake batter. I swirled in some blue food coloring in the batter so the cake ended up looking blue when you cut into it. I didn't do any fillings. I also made a dozen cupcakes and had a few leftover which a couple of my friends taste tested for me and said were delicious! I hope the guests of honor were happy!!!
