Parachuting Koala Cake
My sister Avery spent the last semester on exchange in Australia. Of course a cake was expected upon her return. Since she "enjoyed" a skydiving experience during her time abroad, I thought a parachuting koala cake would be a fun idea, and something a little different.
I used glass candle holders I found lying around our house to support the cake, and cotton balls for clouds. It would have been fun to make the clouds out of cotton candy but it's not easy to find it around here, and pink clouds don't really work...
I used a steamer to give the cake a bit of a shine and it made it look a little more like a parachute. Once again, rice krispy treats and modeling chocolate for the koala. The cake was chocolate with peanut butter buttercream, Avery's favorite!
