Here is a 2 tier sponge cake covered with fondant icing and decorated in a Top Gun theme. Inspiration was from a customers pic of a cake online.
The edible plane, a F14 tomcat, is handmade using modelling paste. I draw a template for the shape of the jet and worked from there.
I added stipes of red and white fondant across the top tier following the plane.
The plane is sitting on clouds made from small balls of fondant covered in a thin sheet which is gently pressed around the balls to give a cloud like shape.
The Top Gun writing is hand cut following a printed paper template to achieve the correct font shape.
