Today I’m gonna show you this cake I made a while back.
But before we look at the cake, there’s something we need to talk about.
The life of a blogger is different from normal living.
In normal life, when a glass of water spills, we grab a towel to clean it up.
A blogger sees this as a posting opportunity and reaches for the camera.
On this cake I spent a million hours figuring out this-and-that without picking up the camera.
Now I’m a blogger and I think like one.
All future cool cakes will be well documented for your tutorial pleasure.
The characters in front of the cake are the actual characters that sit inside the toy version of “Rocket”.
For the bottom part of Rocket “the belly”, I baked a cake using a football pan to get the pointy-oval shape with just a little roundness underneath.
The “cabin” and the “engines” are made from rice crispy treats.
There was a LOT of carving work on both the football cake and the rice crispy treats to get the shape I wanted.
The red body color of Rocket is regular icing, and the blue parts are made from fondant.
