John 4 Rocket Cake

I have never done a tutorial on this site. However, my dear friend Jennifer, the mother of John, asked me to.  She took a cake decorating class with me in June, and has come over to learn a few tricks, but wants to see more.  Both of us have a 4 year old and a 2 year old.  So scheduling time for us to spend together decorating is nearly impossibly.  She has been wanting to order a cake from me for months and finally did for her son John’s 4th birthday.  He is into anything that flies: Saturn 5 Rockets and super heroes. If it flies, he loves it.  His party was to be held last Saturday at the Bowling Alley and my girls were invited.  I was ready to surprise all our friends with my carving abilities.  Unfortunately John came down with a bad ear infection and the party was postponed until after the holidays.  I had baked the cakes and made the Swiss Buttercream prior to the cancellation.  We decided to go ahead with the cake in honor of his birthday and let them eat it during Thanksgiving with his family in Alabama.  I delivered it today and they were all impressed.  Especially John!

Hello reader, this Blog is a real time biography for Bonobo Cakes. BC will become an official bakery sooner than later. For now however, we are closed. With the addition of a 3rd child, life is to important to stop and spend 24 hours strait on a cake. Although we love cake, it will be a while before we get back into baking on a large scale. Enjoy the stories and photos, but please ask prior to using any of our original information on another site. Thank you and Enjoy the blog as it was!
