When it’s your plane-obsessed fiance’s 40th birthday there’s only one thing for it… The Vulcan bomber! I handmade this iconic aircraft in fondant and painted in cocoa butter (while diligently studying google images for an attempt at accuracy!), then created a sky scene on the cake and added meringue and fondant clouds, finished with a blue ganache drip. The birthday boy was very happy!!

Cake details: chocolate fudge sponge with chocolate meringue buttercream, ganache and mint aero chunks.
