This is a fun cake! I haven't worked with run-out much, but it wasn't hard to follow the pattern. I think that this was a good break-in for the run-out tecnique. My son loved it!

This cake was alot of fun to make and turned out really cute. I made it for my father-in-law and he got a big kick out of it. You need to make sure you do your colorflow items well in advance to insure proper dry time. If you have trouble with the wings, foam board works really well.
