Flying rocket cake

  • Preheat oven to 180°C/160°C fan-forced. Grease a 7cm-deep, 23cm (base) square cake pan. Line base and sides with baking paper.

  • Make packet cakes following packet directions or homemade cakes (see related recipe). Spread into prepared pan. Bake for 1 hour or until cooked through. Stand in pan for 5 minutes. Turn out onto a wire rack to cool completely.

  • Make icing: Using an electric mixer, beat butter in a bowl until pale. Gradually add icing sugar mixture and milk, beating constantly until combined.

  • Using a serrated knife, level top of cake if necessary. Place cake, cut-side down, on board. Place template on cake (see notes). Secure with toothpicks. Cut around template to form body and 'fins'. Arrange on board.

  • Spoon 1/2 cup icing into a bowl. Tint red. Spoon 1/2 cup remaining icing into a bowl. Tint blue.

  • Using picture as a guide, spread plain icing over top and sides of rocket tip and fins. Spread remaining cake with blue and red icing. Place 2 sour straps across top of cake, trimming to fit. Cut red strips from 2 sour straps. Place on cake where body meets fins, trimming to fit. Using picture as a guide, decorate rocket with M&Ms, cachous and Life Savers. Cut remaining sour straps into uneven lengths. Position at base for flames. Serve.

    Simple 2-D cake toppers are an easy and cost-effective way to really jazz up your birthday–cake designs. This rocket–cake tutorial from Lori Mahoney is a great way to boost your celebration cake business into 2019!


    • Rocket ship template 
    • 1,000 g of white fondant, 100 g of red fondant, 50 g each of light blue, yellow, and gray fondant
    • CMC or tylose powder
    • Various sizes of round plungers, cookie cutters, or icing tips
    • Medium- and small–size star plungers
    • Scalpel 
    • Scissors
    • Small rolling pin
    • Small paintbrush
    • Water

    1.Print out the rocket ship template provided onto plain whitepaper, and cut out the template as shown. Take half of the white fondant and add 1/4 teaspoon of tylose powder to stiffen the fondant. Roll out the fondant to 1/8″ thickness, then place the template over the top and cut out the pattern. Roll out the second half of the white fondant (without the tylose) and repeat the step to create two rocket shapes, as shown.

    2.Roll the red fondant into a long strip approximately 3/16 of an inch thick. With a scalpel, cut out the red portions of the design, using the template as a guide.

    3.Roll out the gray fondant, then, using two round plungers or circle cutters (one larger than the other), cut two circles to create the window for the rocket ship. Cut a strip for the bottom of the rocket. Cut a small circle from blue fondant for the inside of the window. Allow to dry. 

    Lori notes: I used the back of a large piping tip to cut one circle and a smaller one to cut out the middle.

    4.Roll out the yellow fondant quite thinly, and, using the stars plungers, cut out enough stars to cover the bottom of the cake.

    5.Push a dowel about halfway into the thicker rocket cut out from step 3, and brush with water. Place the thinner cutout on top and let dry.

    6.Attach the remaining precut pieces of fondant to the rocket with a little water, and allow to dry overnight.  

    7.Push the rocket topper into the top of the cake, leaving about an inch clearance.

    8.Roll a variety of different–size balls of white fondant and adhere to the top of the cake, around the base of the rocket. This will form the plume.

    9.Roll more fondant balls and adhere around the base of the cake tier. Attach the fondant stars to the cake, ensuring an even coverage.
