I got asked to be a god mother to my fiances little cousin. This came as a shock to me! I was so excited I wanted to make him a special cake for his confirmation and not the typical confirmation cake. This little boy loves space and rockets so I decided to do a NASA cake. I might of been biting off more then I could chew but I was up for the challenge and it had been a while since I did a cake so I was ready to jump in. There were a few hiccups along the way but I couldn't be more happy with the way it cake out!
Here is the main part of the cake drying. It's rice crispies treats covered in fondant. With edible logos.
Now for the cake itself. Sorry for the poor quality, it was taken with my phone which at this point was all covered in powder sugar. -_- I did however love the way the stars came out. It took a few different techniques for me to get it like this but in the end I was happy.
I was going to put space rocks around the cake but figured the confirmation boy would enjoy that way more. Here is a picture of the rocks the boy added.
Here is the ecstatic boy taking a picture of his cake.
I finally was smart enough to clean my phone's camera lens to snap this picture right before I left. That blue ribbon tied around the spaceship was there for added support to make sure it wouldn't tip over. The party wasn't till hours later so I wanted to make sure it would be okay.
Here was my picture I took right before I left for delivers. Notice the rocks weren't placed yet.
