A party of Titanic proportions
It does not matter how old you are, 5 or 80 years old, if you get Titanic fever you must follow it! The party ship departed but this time it did not sink. I started by downloading the plans, the real plans for the boat and figured out how to translate them into a cake and a piñata to the best of my abilities.
I started the piñata from scratch- that means cardboard, staples, glue, a lot of imagination and late nights. It took about 2 weeks to complete as I could only work about 1 to 2 hours a day. I also needed time for the papier mache to dry in between layers. It was very rewarding to see the final piece, complete with flags and all.
The cake took about 8 hours - it is a butter sponge, covered in buttercream. It has at least 5 layers of sheet cake to get the right height. The windows are chocolate chips. You can eat everything in that cake except the flag poles!! I debated whether to put the iceberg in, but I guess you could not have a Titanic without an iceberg.
