Helicopter Challenge

Every once in a while I get to think more like an engineer than a cake designer, and this was definitely one of those times.  I was asked to create a birthday cake using this model helicopter as inspiration.  After a few architectural missteps, I was able to get rice krispie treats, some fondant and a few lollipop sticks into a fairly close likeness of the original model.

The birthday boy really liked it, and all the party guests enjoyed the combination of vanilla cake with mocha filling,


  1. My dear, this is soo awesome! i can't tell the difference between the real toy and yours!

  2. Oh, Faithy, you are too kind!
