When I look at this cake the Top Gun theme song, "Danger Zone" starts to play in my head. My husband is a HUGE airplane, jet, helicopter, glider, really anything that can fly fan. He builds remote controlled model airplanes, so what would be more appropriate than to make a jet cake for his birthday. I saw a cake similar to this by Lindy Smith (a famous European cake decorator). The Jet is made from gumpaste and the clouds are the cake. I used two 8 inch square cakes as well as the mini ball pans to help with the fluffiness of the clouds. I cut the stacked 8 inch cake into two curvy sections and added the mini half balls to it.

Hope you are all having a wonderful "fluffy cloud" day.
