I'm making my first car cake. It's going to be an early 80s model Ford Fairmont station wagon, lol. I think it's a good choice for my first car, as it's pretty boxy. Any tips on how to do the wheels/tires, windshield, details, etc?
It basically looks like an older station wagon, nothing fancy. Sorry I can't attach a pic, so I don't expect anything specific, just general suggestions or tips on making car cakes.
I have no tips, but I'm curious to see what others say since my FI wants me to recreate either his '64 Caddy or '66 Mustang in cake.
I did a car cake for my son's birthday in March. : ) I used cookies for the wheels and since it was a chocolate cake left the windows as is and didn't ice them. Utilizing cookies and candies as accessories is a great way to avoid coloring and molding fondant for small details on your cake. Browse the truck/automobile photo gallery on CC for lot's of great ideas.
