Space Cake step 2

2. Cover the cake with white frosting, then set in place red and blue M&M's for rivets and pipe on red gel icing letters.

3. For an added flair, insert candles in the bottom of the rocket and let them burn briefly (with adult supervision, of course) before cutting and serving the cake.


You can cut the longer, unused cake pieces into smaller chunks and place them around the rocket for space debris.
