Lindsay contact us a few weeks back, wanting a birthday cake for her son who was turning 3. She wanted an Orange Creamsicle Cake with Buttercream to feed 30 in the shape of a rocket.
We began by baking a football shaped pan and a 12″ square cake. We placed the football shaped cake on top of the square and cut away the same shape plus added the two “legs” if I can call them that (as I have no clue what the correct term is) and a slope that we would layer buttercream flames on. We put a layer of icing between the cakes and then covered the entire sculpted cake with buttercream. We piped a stripe, windows and stars, outlined in red and filled in the stripe and legs with dark blue buttercream. We then piped in the rest of the rocket with light blue buttercream. We mixed up red and orange buttercream and put them both in the icing bag at the same time and piped on the flames at the rear of the rocket. This caused the red and orange to swirl and blend together when piping. After four hours, it was complete.
Thank you, Lindsay, for allowing us the opportunity to create a special cake for your son! We hope he had a wonderful, exciting birthday.
