Little Einsteins Rocket Cake

Little Einsteins Rocket Cake

This is my first Little Einsteins Rocket Cake.

I had no previous experience, and no idea what buttercream was. I was determined to make this cake for my son's 2nd birthday. So, I recorded all the cake making shows, went to the craft store and bought a "starter kit" full of disposable bags & tips.

I made 2 cake mixes. One in a rectangle pan, and one in an oval glass dish (to get the bump on the top of rocket) I shaved the rectangle to become more oval. I placed the ova

l cake on top. I used 2 twinkies as the rockets. I frosted the entire cake with a #16 star tip. I used red food coloring (which had no taste) and just frosted the window in blue. My son knew exactly what it was and I felt like the best mom ever. I currently am taking some wilton courses:)

From the editor:

Great job for your first cake. Thanks so much for sharing.
welcome to the wonderful world of cake decorating.

Nice to see here NEW

Your comment on storing cake after icing has been most helpful. It confirm my concerns, as I found out the hard way not to place cake iced with fondant in the refrigerator, that's a no, no!!!
The result was sweating all the way; I could not believe that it as a result of refrigerating the cake. Now everything is coming together.
thanks for the confirmation through your blog.

You have given this grandmother hope! I too am going to attempt to make a Rocket birthday cake for my grandson who will be 3 in one week. I love your cake! I pray mine turns out half as pretty as yours has. Thanks for the inspiration.
