This is my first dairy free cake, but special request. I don’t often venture into different baking styles, but I so loved the idea of doing the solar system that I jumped at the chance.
the planets are all fondant or gumpaste, and the sun is cake covered with meringue.
I would love to revisit this theme with an older audience in mind – maybe a steampunk version or like the Golden Compass look. We’ll see what comes around next.
