I had to ask my husband what the coolest fighter jet was, he told me either the F-35 or the F-22. He also graciously looked up pictures of both for me, or at least he said it was for me, really he just wanted to stare at the awesome air machines, I think. Anyway this was for a little boy named Ben who was turning five, I must clarify that it is someone elses Ben, not mine. The cake was chocolate with swiss meringue butter cream wrapped up in in super sonic steel colored fondant.
This is, I believe, my first retirement cake. The lucky fellow worked at Delta Airlines, so it was only natural to make an airplane for him. A yummy airplane too, vanilla cake with raspberry preserves and swiss meringue butter cream wrapped up in fondant. Happy retirement!
