a rocket ship cake for Thomas

Time for another birthday cake! This one was for Thomas' 6th birthday, which we celebrated a couple of weeks ago. It was a very simple cake this time, from one of the older Women's Weekly cake books (we have a whole pile!). Here's how we did it.

We made the cake using 3 packet mixes.

We cooked it in a very large tin.
We cut around the rocket ship pattern.

We iced the cake: yellow in the middle,
and orange for the fins and edges.

We used licorice straps to outline the different sections.

We attempted the word "TOM" in lollies!

Great candles, aren't they?

The sparklers were the highlight.

Candle time!

Happy birthday Thomas!
