WHITE CHOCOLATE GANACHE
the white chocolate ganache that I used was perfect to create a smooth surface, first a thin crumb coat then the final coat ( use a long spreading spatula dipped in hot water to get your perfectly smooth surface, and a smaller spatula for the smaller areas )
WHITE PETTINICE BAKELS RTR FONDANT ICING
I have my 7kg of white fondant that I use but any white fondant will do
before placing any decorations on, roll out some blue fondant as a rough size of the board. Cut out the shape of the plane from a birds eye view and cut from the back of the plane to the end of the fondant in a straight line. With some water or syrup lightly brush the board with the liquid and wrap the rolled fondant around the plane till the ends meet and blend together with your hands. Smooth it and trim the edges.
I had pre-made some of my decorations a week ahead for them to firm up by the time I needed to decorate my cake these decortion were: the wings (all 5), the engines (4), the clouds.
The decorations I made at the end were the windows, numbers,letters, painting the wings.
|Step 1 ( Cut your basic shape from a 20 by 20 square cake )|
|Step 2 ( Chilled cake start carving your shape )|
|Step 3 ( Crumb Coat using ganache and the 'hot knife' method)|
|Step 4 ( apply your final coat of ganache )|
|Step 5 ( Smooth the ganache using the 'hot knife' method )|
|Step 6 ( Cover with rolled White fondant )|
|Step 8 ( Position decorations, if you feel wings need more support use your clouds )|
|Step 9 ( Cut out windows, numbers and letters and place them on with some water, then make any finishing touches like clearing any cornflour to do this brush water over the cornflour bits lightly )|
