We’re seeing some serious stars here! Galaxy cakes and space-inspired desserts have been all over the internet lately, and we love them for birthday parties, themed celebrations or as a special surprise for your favorite space geek. These cakes may seem difficult to pull off — but with the right tools and know-how, you can take your desserts to infinity and beyond in no time.



  1. Pick your preferred cake recipe, prepare the batter and bake it accordingly.
  2. Once done, remove the cake from the oven and let it cool. 
  3. Level the cake so the decorations will look smooth and even.
  4. Frost the cake with Wilton’s iconic Vanilla Buttercream Frosting.
  5. Alternating between blue, violet, pink and black Color Mist sprays, spray color onto the top of the cake and the sides of the cake. Trust us, the less you think about it, and the more free-wheeling the color pattern, the more galaxy-like your cake will be!
  6. Using a large flat brush and White-White Icing Color, splatter color onto the cake.
  7. Make your cake twinkle with starlight by adding some white nonpareils and sugar pearls for the final touch!
