Hello Cake Friends! My grandson has requested a Army Chinnock helicopter cake for his birthday and I’m kind of nervous about doing this!

Wow Ellie, that sounds like quite an undertaking! I have never made anything like that, so I’m no help to you! I’m sure someone on Cakes Decor will be helpful! Good luck sweetie! I know it will be fantastic!

Thanks for the encouragement Toni! I couldn’t find a tutorial on a carved 3D helicopter so I have looked at a couple of tutorials on airplane cakes. Going to be an adventure!

Ellie, I found this video about how to make a base for the helicopter cake. It might be helpful.

Thank you Julia and Ana for the encouragement!! And Toni thank you for the heads up that Sharon had posted a Chinnock Helicopter cake!! I’ve been so busy all day that here it is after 11:00 pm and this is the first time I’ve been on CD today! I’ll definitely be sneaking peeks at Sharon’s cake while I’m making mine!
