Here's an easy idea for a fun rocket ship birthday cake. I like to cut and decorate ready made sponge cake slabs bought from the supermarket to save time and stress. However, you could also make your own sponge cake to begin with.

Why not team with rocket ship fruit skewers and make some splatter planet decorations for a rocket ship themed party? You could even make your own rockets as a craft activity during the birthday party.

Preparation Time: 30 minutes
Makes: 15 servings

Ingredients
Three shop bought cake slabs (or you could make your own sponge cake to begin with)
Five heaped tablespoons jam
One pack ready to roll fondant icing
Three jam ring biscuits
Three chocolate Freckles
Three square bottomed wafer ice cream cones
Red and yellow cellophane
Aluminium foil
Sellotape

I like to cut and decorate ready made cake slab to reduce stress given all the other party preparations needed


Method
Wrap a board with aluminium foil to set your cake on
Cut your cake slabs into two rectangles (for the rocket body), a large triangle (for the rocket tip) and two smaller triangles (for the rocket fins) and assemble on the cake board using a little jam to stick together

Warm the rest of the jam then spread over the cake, saving a little bit to stick on some of the final decorations

Ready for icing


Roll the ready roll icing out into a large rectangle
then place over the jam surface and press down around the cake
Trim off the excess icing around the sides of the cake by cutting about a centimeter away from the cake edge then tucking in

Fondant icing applied


Cut your ice cream cones in half lengthways with a knife and carefully trim the bottom until you have the size you want (I cut off about 2 centimetres). I discarded the other half of each cone as one side tended to crack when I cut them.
Place three half cones onto the bottom of the rocket to make the rocket boosters

Stick on the jam rings for windows using a little jam and stick the chocolate Freckles on top of the jam rings using a spot of jam.

Now cut strips of red and yellow cellophane and affix into the cones on the board using a curl of sellotape (sticky side out)
