This has to be one of the more different cakes I've been asked to make, but I think that's what made it so enjoyable. A friends Mum was turning 50 and she has a bit of an infatuation with airplanes, so a plane cake it was. The birthday girl likes planes so much that she has the dinner set used by Qantas in their first and business class. I thought it was very cute story, so with that in mind based the cake on a Qantas airplane.
For the inside of the cake I used one of my favourite flavours, a lemon and lime white chocolate mudcake filling and frosted with white chocolate ganache. The outside of the cake and the decorations are all fondant. I was a little worried that the wings wouldn't stand up to the rainy weather so made them out of cake board covered with fondant.
