Space Shuttle Cake
by Meena Mustafa
As a child my dream was to become a pastry chef but where I grew up there were no culinary schools so I just learned it from watching videos and reading all about cakes. If given a chance I'd love to work on weekends in a pastry shop to improve my skills.
I made this cake for a colleague of mine who wanted NASA as the theme cake for her son's birthday. I made the shuttle with Rice Krispies and gum paste. I made the shuttle standing on earth ready to take off and the other half of the cake I made to look like the galaxy with stars. On the side of the cake I put astronauts. Every thing on this cake is edible and I put in a lot of effort doing the art work. I hope you too will like it. Hi Meena, I love your cake entry it's very unique. Great work! Thank you so much for submitting your space shuttle cake to the cake decorating contest.
