Today I made my little Prince a birthday cake for his 5th birthday...Oh where has the time gone...
He is absolutely obsessed with the solar system.
|I used a cake mix because I was doing this with a 3 and 5 year old...and simplicity was the only thing keeping me sane.|
We used our cake pop maker to make the planets.
|I used disposable cups and divided the batter into 5 cups.|
|Red, orange, blue , green, and yellow|
|We used blue and green for Earth|
|Yellow and red for the sun...|
|O.K I am going to be honest we had no clue which planet these were...Neptune???|
|Here are all the planets...|
O.k...so now I made 2 more cake mixes and divided the batter in 3 parts ...1 black, 1 blue, and 1 plain
|Add some of each color batter just to cover the bottom of your greased pan, then add the planets...|
|Cover the planets with enough batter just to cover them so your pans are about half full.Bake as directed on the box.|
|This is what your layers will look like inside.Cool the layers ..|
|These are the colors of icing I used. Black, pink,light blue and dark blue.|
|Base coat your cake in black|
|Add blue splotches|
|Then purple splotches|
|Then pink splotches|
|Smooth the frosting with a spatula|
Now it is time to decorate...
|I had to add a little Paw Patrol...|
|We made Saturn suckers using blow pops and Peach gummi rings|
|He absolutely loved his cake and went wild when he saw the planets inside!!!|
|"Mimi...these planets taste soooo good!"|
