Additional Information

Step 1

Bake and cool cake. Trim off center doorway and turret area of cake so that surface will be level for starburst message.

Step 2

In advance, use royal icing to make 120 (40 each yellow, red, blue) Tip 16 stars on board covered with waxed paper. Make extras to allow for breakage and let dry.

Step 3

Ice sides and background area of cake smooth with chocolate buttercream icing. Outline center starburst message area with Tip 3, fill in area with Tip 9 (smooth with finger dipped in cornstarch). Outline rockets with Tip 3 and cover with Tip 16 stars.

Step 4

Trim 5 lollipop sticks to staggered lengths; attach a yellow star to bottom of each with icing. Insert sticks into bottom of cake.

Step 5

For each star spray, twist 5 florist wires together at bottom. Randomly attach stars to wires with royal icing. Insert flower spikes in cake and position a star spray in each. Use Tip 3 to outline burst marks and to print message on cake. Add Tip 21 star bottom border.
