Skydiving Cake

This post was originally published in 2016 on my other blog, but I love this cake, so I'm sharing it here!


I made this skydiving cake for a good friend’s birthday!

My favorite part was actually making the simple sky background!  For that, I frosted the cake (orange cake by the way) blue and smoothed it.  Then I added blobs of white and smoothed again to create the wispy clouds.

The parachute is made of MM Fondant (dried over a wine bottle overnight).

As a final touch, I asked Hubs to rigs one of the kids’ airplanes over the cake from our skydiver to jump from!
