So my hubby volunteered me to do a cake for his work. He works at State Farm and he wants a State Farm cake. DAAAAAHH!!

That means I would have to do a FBCT and I've never done one!

What if I mess it up?? He needs it for wednesday and on top of that I still have to bake a cake for my class on tuesday and make the icing for that and color it as well. And I still don't know if I really want to do the clowns for class or not!!!

What do I do?? icon_cry.gif

Not sure about how to make a State Farm cake.

I didn't want to make the clowns for my class. I made a batch of cupcakes and put just clown heads and frosting collars on some of the cupcakes. The rest had frosting polka-dots in the same, bright, clown colors. I've never made those clowns again, so I have a baggie full of clown heads in the back of my cake supply cupboard.

FBT are not really hard - just make sure you get your icing thick enough so it doesn't break or stick to the paper. I have made a couple of them and they really come out great. Just follow the instructions and you will be fine! Good luck!

Unless hubby already gave you a picture to make. I would go to the state farm site and pick out the logo, now make sure you print it backwards.

Because what you will see is the base of what you will color in.

All you need is red and white icing if you are going to do the logo so you have plenty of time. Just have fun.

Good Luck.

There is a tutorial - with pics - on this site about how to do one. I would recommend doing the entire cake top at the same time as the fbct. Then, you have the fbct already embedded in the cake top without having to worry about whether it will break while placing it on the cake or if you need to pipe some kind of border around the fbct to try and get it to "blend" into the cake top. Does that make sense?
