This is an upside-down post. It shows the finished cake, and then in reverse, the steps I took to get there. Not including baking and planning (the most important part) I probably spent under 2 hours doing the actual decorating.
The airplanes are the only non-edible part of the cake. Happy Birthday, Little Brother!
Here's the partially-iced cake.
This is the fully-iced cake without airplanes.
Here's how I started out. 2 cakes size 9X13 and 3 mini loaf cakes.
