F-18 Navy Jet Aircraft Cakes, Cupcakes and Cookies too

Sage and MI is based in Virginia Beach, Virginia, a notorious location for fighter jet flyovers from Naval Air Station Oceana.  We LOVE jet noise and the aircraft too.  To share our appreciation of our local aircraft and our excitement for the release of Top Gun Maverick we would like to present to you our latest post, F-18 Hornets and Super Hornets Navy Jet Aircraft Cakes and Cupcakes.

We want to share the best ideas and supplies to ensure any jet enthusiast has the aviation dessert of their dreams.  Perfect for any celebration.


A perfect idea for an F-18 jet-themed cake is to create a runway or flight deck design for your cake surface and place jet aircraft figures on top.

You can also make an F-18 cake topper with fondant, like the one in the video shown below.

The fondant model in this video is our absolute favorite do-it-yourself jet cake creation.  Especially since you can customize the F-18 you create with a pilot name, just like on a real jet!  This is the perfect personalization factor.  The tutorial shows the final aircraft on a cake resembling the sky.  However, you can always place it on a flight deck scene instead.
