My grandson turns five tomorrow. He wanted a Rocket Cake. So of course I had to do it. I made the rocket three times. Once using cake, which was way to soft. The second time I used rice krispy treats but didn't put in stability besides the dowel in the center. It exploded at the bottom after awhile....it just sank on itself. The third time I put in little cardboards every 6 or 8 inches with small dowels through the treats so that it would hold up and it did much better. Another learning experience. Hope you enjoy the pics.
