Transportation Theme Cupcake Tower - Airplanes, sailboats, and cars


This was for a 1-year-old little boy birthday party. I attempted to make an airplane like the one shown with a banner trailing from it's tail to write happy birthday on, but it was too heavy and broke. I thought it might, so I had already made the single plane just in case. Everything is made of edible fondant. The cake was iced with buttercream colored sky blue. I bought a set of mini cutters with all forms of transportation, but was not real happy with the shape of the airplane. It looks more like a bird to me. If anyone has a suggestion on how to accent the plane so it definitely looks like a plane, please email me!
This was 3 dozen cupcakes and a 6" cake on top. Fun, fun!
