Little Einsteins Rocket Cake

I decorated under careful supervision from the Birthday Girl.

Bluebird was really excited about this whole thing.

Yes, I'm sticking my tongue out...I do that when I'm concentrating. Look at that enormous baby belly! Four more weeks to go...but I definitely wouldn't mind if she'd show up earlier!

Voila! I think it looks like its namesake.

By far, this has been one of the easiest cakes I've ever done. I didn't even have to make decorating frosting--I just used the stuff that comes in a can from the baking aisle. Two cans for red, and about 1/3 a can for the blue. The only "fancy" thing I used was a #5 writing tip to outline the window. Oh, and one half of a "Sports Ball" cake pan set.

I did not think this up on my own at all, but got the idea from

Now I'm off to wrap up a pair of Little Einsteins pajamas and a real Mickey Mouse scarf...she lost the one I made her, but I found one with Mickey Mouse on it for like $3. Sweet.
