  Today is my husband’s 48th birthday and this Christmas we will be celebrating our 22nd wedding anniversary. During this 22 years of marriage, I have never bake a cake for him before. I only pick up baking after I move to Perth, this past 11 years in Perth, I have make many many cakes for friends and for my children’s birthday, but never have opportunity to make any birthday cake for him as every year around this time I already in Singapore enjoying my holiday. This year my son’s school holiday only starting tomorrow and my husband is back here in Perth, so I decided to celebrate his very first birthday in Perth, and make for him a special cake. I won’t be able to do this cake without the help of a friend – who is a professional baker, as I wasn’t confidence enough. I made some mistake in the process but also learn some great tips from her, which I believe will help me with my next project. Happy blessed birthday dear! Hope you like the cake! 😍😘.

Tips on handling fondant:
Microwave the fondant for 5 sec (handful size) 10 sec (1-1.5kg)interval until fondant is soft and easy to knead
Apply shortening on your hands to prevent sticking
Add some Glycerine into the fondant (to soften the fondant)
Use glycerine, cellogen with a bit of water to make transparent glue

Things to do few days in advance:
1. the wings (x4), tail (X1), Logo (x2) and engine (x2), mix the fondant with cellogen (to help harden the wings) and knead well, roll out to the thickness you want, cut to the shape and remember to stick a skewer onto the wings and tail so to secure on the cake.
2. Use a cake board and cover with grey fondant for the runway.

3. Make the “grass” using green fondant, pinch into small bits and let it dry then crush into like bread crumbs. brush with edible glue to stick the grass on
4. Make the airplane base, using cardboard then wrap with aluminum foil (for easy handling of the cake)
