Are you looking for a cake for a budding Astronaut or maybe someone who loves space rockets, if so why not make them this moon landing cake! This cake was so much fun to make and I am so excited to share it with you as a video tutorial. In this tutorial I show you step by step how I made the 3D moon cake, airbrushed the board to look like a galaxy and also how I made the rocket with smoke coming out the bottom as it lands…

The cake itself was made from 2 vanilla dome cakes, which I baked in a 6 inch sphere cake tin. When the cakes were sandwiched together with buttercream it was the perfect shape to create a moon. One of my favourite parts of this cake are the craters on the moon, they just bring this cake to life and with the texture and different grey tones, created with the edible dusts, it really looked like a cartoony version of the moon.

The cake was then finished off with its very own rocket landing on the moon in a cloud of smoke. In the tutorial I show you how to use balls of icing stuck together and covered in one larger piece to give this 3D smoke effect. This is also a great technique for creating 3D clouds.
