Cake

I have looked everywhere for the Wilton Sports Ball pan, so I could make that moon cake.  I think I’ve spent too much time looking, so I need to go to plan B.  Plus, I think I’ve decided not to do fondant.  So, I’m thinking of doing THIS moon cake instead.  I just have to find those Necco candies:

And I want to surround that cake with these planet cupcakes, with the different colored frosting:

I’m conflicted on whether I’m going to make a cake with fondant this year or not.  It’s very inexpensive, yet very time consuming. I’m also not sure how ambitious I’m going to feel the week of his party.

Here are some cute cake ideas that I’ve come across so far:

° Rocket Pop Cake:

° Simple flat rocket cake

° Rocket cake with Stars in fondant

° Fondant tiered cake

This cake will be easy, but I’d have a different topper.  Maybe a toy rocket?

° Rocket cake

° Moon cake

Place a small United States flag in the center of the moon cake to claim the territory.

6 Layer cake:

I also saw this cake, and I really like the recipe for both the cake and the frosting.  They use applesauce instead of oil, and the frosting is marshmallow fluff.  Yum.  I also like how it’s so many layers, and I can make them any color I want.  I can go hog wild!  Or do alternating chocolate and vanilla layers.  The choices are endless!  (squiggly line voice)

I really like that moon (or planet?) cake. I don’t know how it is standing, but it looks cool. You could put a really neat rocket toy on it that he can keep and play with later.

Something easier? maybe a cake in the shape of a star? Maybe too boring.

I know! I like the moon cake, too! That’s a really good idea, about the rocket toy in the moon cake! I was just going to make a solid chocolate one, but that would require getting a rocket mold, and I’m not sure if I’d be able to get my hands on one for free or cheap. Of course I did have the ball-shaped cake pan a while back but got rid of it because I never thought I’d use it! DARN!!! Oh well, maybe I can borrow one if I do settle on that cake. I’ll have to ask around. I’ll be making a big ol’ list of things that I need once I figure out and settle on what I’m going to do. Glad I’m starting early!
