I made white cupcakes with green frosting, and I just happened to have some little owl picks and cupcake holders to make them special!
Well, that night was going to be the family party, so the real cake had to be made. Older sister Jayda, Connor and I looked at the internet to decide what kind of cake he would like. We saw some rocketships and that is what got Connor excited, so that is what we did.
I just made a regular 9 x 13 sheet cake and cut off the top cornors to make the point, and cut out two rectangle sections to leave the place where the fire comes out to propell the rocket into the sky. (What is that called?)
I used my homemade frosting, and homemade fondant to do the decorating. Here is the fondant recipe that I have posted before. http://threewinksdesign.weebly.com/3-winks-writes/finally-dipped-chocolates-in-time-for-easter.
Just make sure it is nice and thick so you can roll it. Add food coloring in the colors that you want.
Anyway, I got to thinking, if you wanted to do a full blown outer space birthday party in the winter time, You could use Hot Cocoa Bombs (http://threewinksdesign.weebly.com/3-winks-writes/do-you-want-to-build-a-cocoa-bomb-the-3-winks-way) and add fins and turn them into little rockets that you could splash down into your hot milk! Hmmm, I may try that and let you see the results later.
It is too hot in Phoenix for Hot Cocoa Bombs right now, but you can be sure that they will make an appearance here again!
