This was a great cake to make! My son loved it for his 5th birthday... It was made using the cake pan shaped like the #1. I decorated it using bright colours, and then added sparklers instead of candles at the base of the cake to make it look like fire was shooting out of the bottom of the rocket! It was alot of fun to make!!
