March 17, 2012 - Time-Flies Airplane Cake
Click here for short instructions

It's been a year! A year of blogging to date. Hope that nobody looked for my blog on March 15 this month. I waited a couple of extra days to celebrate. It's been a fun year! Please note, for this next year - I'm scaling back. I'll be posting about one blog a month around the 15th. Returning to the subject at hand though, here's my time flies cake:

Airplane Cake

To make this cake, you'll need a Cake-Shaping Strip (look here about how to make one), heavy-duty aluminum foil, a sheet pan, prepared cake batter (see the Chocolate Banana Cake recipe below or use about 1 box of cake mix), fondant or white frosting, fortune-cookie cookie dough, and black food dye.

First, make a Cake-Shaping Strip as described here using five sushi-mat segments. Line a sheet pan with two sheets of slightly overlapping foil. Shape the strip into a shape of a body of an airplane. Then wrap your foil sheets around your strip.

Now prepare your cake batter. This recipe is really simple, yet your guests will never know. It has a light, unique flavor.

Chocolate Banana Cake
Ingredients:
1 box chocolate cake mix
3 eggs, divided
1/3 cup canola oil
1 cup water
2 bananas, mashed
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon baking soda

Instructions:
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a pan with cooking spray.

2. Beat together the chocolate cake mix, eggs, canola oil and water. Mix the bananas, cinnamon and baking soda.

3. Fold the banana mixiture into the chocolate cake batter.

4. Bake for about 35 minutes or until done.

Now it's time to think about the airplane's wings. They needed to be thin, a strong. A fortune-cookie recipe would seem to be perfect. My sister happened to be here while I was making this one, and she took over this part.

Fortune-Cookie Flat Cookies
Ingredients:
3 egg whites
2/3 cup sugar
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, melted and cooled
1 cup flour
4 1/2 tablespoons water

Instructions:
1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a sheet pan with parchment paper.

2. Beat the egg whites and sugar until it forms soft peaks.

3. Stir in the melted butter. Then stir in the flour and then the water.

4. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Spread the batter onto the parchment paper into desired shapes using a spoon. Attempt to make the spreaded batter level.

5. Bake for about 10-15 minutes or until light brown.

Starting to see it yet:

Airplane Cake

Frost one side of the cookies with white frosting, and let them completely dry. In the meantime, roll out white fondant. You can use our Easy Marshmallow Creme Fondant. Frost the cake with white frosting, and cover it with white fondant. Then frost the other side of the cookies. Stick the cookies into the cake.
