The base is a chocolate cake, frosted with buttercream. The sun is streaked buttercream. The planets are actually candy covered in marshmallow fondant. (And? These were really fun to make! I might have to convince more people that their cakes need there…"Ya know what would make this Hello Kitty cake perfect? Planets. Just around her face.")
Here's a little closer look. The asteroid belt is made from Raisinettes and the stars are shimmery white sprinkles. I could not believe that my local grocery store didn't carry dragees*! What is this world coming to??
* Don't be too confused. Three years ago, I called them "edible BBs" or "those silver ball thingies."
