A couple of weeks ago I got to do a brand new cake design based on airplanes! This airplane cake and cookies and smash cake was for Wesson’s first birthday and it was so much fun!
First up, the big cake. It was all vanilla cake with vanilla buttercream, covered with marshmallow fondant. The clouds were vanilla buttercream too, and I used a large Wilton round tip to pipe them right onto the fondant! I used cookie cutters for the airplanes… the large one from this Wilton set and also this little cutesy one.
Next up, a smash cake! This is a trend in caking right now and I just love making the small little matching cakes!
This little airplane smash cake was a 6″ vanilla cake filled and frosted with matching blue vanilla buttercream! The mother of the birthday boy provided me with the matching Airplane “1” candle… but you can get one here (looks like that might be more than one… try here too!).
Lastly, Wesson’s Mom wanted matching airplane cookies and she wanted some chocolate at the party (what girl doesn’t?)! So, this is why I made those Brownie Roll-Out cookies a few weeks ago… and I made them again for this party! They turned out really great! (these were also cut out with the large cookie cutter from the Wilton set).
Do you have any questions about these cakes or cookies? Please leave them in the comments and I’ll do my best to answer and help out!
