Hi all,
My 2 yr old son loves airplane and I want to do an Airplane cake for him. I want the feel to be more like a toy airplane rather than a real one.

I want to attempt something like this from Pink cake box.

Can anybody tell me how should I go about doing this??

Thanks so much in advance.

Well, I didn't see an airplane cake in the link you posted...but... You could just mold an airplane from gumpaste and have it up on wires...or, have a larger airplane molded from rice krispy treats, then cover in fondant. You could have this big plane sitting on top of a cake...

Otherwise, look in my photos, I have a cake that's carved like an airplane, I used cardboard for the wings and tail..

Hi I would just stack sheet cake appropriate for sevings needed, freeze till firm then. carve to shape.Use cut out piece for tail and ice .If you are not into carving there is a similar pan (plastic one) but it is really small...I have a carved plane in my gallery but it is more realistic not toyish done for a young boy who loved it and wanted to play with his plane haha...HTH
