We had a wonderful visit with family in Houston, TX. I also got to make an airplane cake to boot!

My sister-in-law actually took pictures of the plane’s progress. Looking back, it’s hard to remember how it all started, so I was very happy she did it.
As you can tell, it is a carrot cake with cream cheese frosting. I used a 9×13 and a loaf pan for the cake and somehow managed to create the following (can you tell we visited during Valentines weekend?):
