Ellen, I love the show Ace of Cakes!!
Thanks for the embellishment ideas. I do like to use other stuff instead of just frosting--easier in the long run.
Luke has a toy aircraft carrier so I will have to check for portholes
I do have to make some kind of little thing to go on top for the "control tower" or whatever it is....maybe a mini loaf cake will work. I am basically going to use his toy as a model.
This is a little scary because of the hugeness of it....it will be hard to store during the party
Tami, thanks for the link! Maybe I could shortcut right to that icing color that made the lady's blue icing gray
I know I can get the paste colors, no problem.
