Solar System cake

The entire Solar System on a cake! how cool is that?

We got the chance to create this unique cake a couple of months ago. The cake was for a 3 year old boy who loves his Solar System puzzle. This two-tiered cake has a Bubbly Butterscotch flavor and mousse filling with crunchy caramelized nuts. We made the Sun and the bigger planets with styrofoam balls covered in fondant. The smaller planets were simply made with fondant. We also made a little space shuttle to go with the Solar System, since the birthday boy loved rocket ships as well. The major challenge was in creating the ring to go around Saturn. We tried various approaches, and finally settled on making the ring with sugar candy.

Enjoy the pictures!
