Hot Air Balloon Cake!

img_9955Hi friends! Today is my dad’s birthday, and I booked a hot air balloon ride as his gift. I can’t think of a cooler way to enjoy the gorgeous fall colors in Michigan. The only available time that worked for us was actually a week after his birthday, but I wanted to reveal his gift before that. So, I set out to make a hot air balloon cake!

I was on Pinterest all week to plan out this cake.

  • Frosting: http://www.bakedbyanintrovert.com/coconut-buttercream-frosting/
  • Cloud Frosting: http://www.yourcupofcake.com/2014/03/cloud-cupcakes.html
  • Balloon Net (just reference, but kind of winged it): http://snowdropandcompany.blogspot.ca/2014/04/easter-egg-hot-air-balloons.html

 

I installed the trees:

Then added sprinkle leaves on the branches and the ground:

Topped it with fluffy clouds:
