3D Planes Birthday Cake
3D Dusty Crophopper for my nephew! I built the structure out of sturdy plywood, screws and hinges. In order to have it lifted in the air I connected it to a couple flanges and a lead pipe (hidden by cotton). The body of the plane is chocolate cake, sculpted to reflect Dusty's appearance. Everything is covered in fondant to obtain Dusty's features (number is different to reflect my nephew's age). I had a ton of fun making this one...and a couple long nights. I was especially proud of myself because I made this before the movie was even out in theaters, so I was limited when it came to finding a model. All in all, it was a huge hit and he loved it!
