oh my goodness, my all time favorite Mike McCarey has his first DVD out! I know I cant believe it either.
Heres what the e-mail says:

We are excited to announce the new release of Mikeâs first DVD in the
Cakenology educational series, âCar Cakesâ!

The DVD covers the entire process for sculpting a 3-D to-scale car cake.
While the specific car demonstrated on the DVD is a Ford GT Mustang, the
principles can easily be applied to any sculpted car.

The DVD runs approximately 2 hrs and contains downloadable recipes for
buttercream, sculptable cake and modeling chocolate, as well as, supply lists and reference materials.
While our automated ordering website is still under construction, we are taking
orders directly by phone at this time for credit card purchases (Visa, MC &
Amex). We can be reached Tues-Fri at 425-869-2992.
The purchase price is $32.50 + $7.50 shipping and handling (USD) for addresses
within the US (please call for shipping rates outside the US). Orders will be
shipped via US Priority Mail within 10 days of ordering
.

If you've never seen his site, well you just have to (I'm sure you have seen him on the FN challenges):

I'm sooooo buying this. My DH did the car cake in my photos (his 2nd cake) and he wants to do another. This would be a good excuse to buy it right. icon_wink.gif It validates it for me at least. icon_lol.gif

I'll have to order it in another few weeks though since I'm tight on money right now.....darn school clothes, shoes and supplies.

This is probably legit. but I am skeptical of everything these days. Where is Mike McCarey located? The 425 area code is in Washington State. I would be very leary of calling a phone number and giving them my credit card # unless I was sure it was on the up and up!

Sorry, that's just me being paranoid.

I ordered Mike's DVD the second I opened my email yesterday.

Thanks SweetResults, when I clicked on the link for the website, it wouldn't open on my PC and it just made me wonder if it was legit. I guess I'll have to let my PC allow it so I can take a look for myself. I'd love to have a DVD on doing 3D car cakes. My husband has a 67 barracuda and what a surprise that would be to make him a barracuda cake. I have made the car for him in fondant, it would be really neat to make it in cake!

I bought the DVD at ICES convention in July. It's good--lots of tips, some recipes...and be sure to watch it all the way to the end.

Mike is my cake hero...I'm definitely getting this. I want to know more about the modeling chocolate, which seems to be his specialty. I have the email in my inbox to remind me to get it once I get a little more cake cash to spend! I'm kinda tight right now...just bought a laptop...

Plus I hate car cakes, done a few, hated every one of them. Looking forward to see how to do a real one!

I got mine last week, and when I called to order it I asked the gal taking the order if he wouldn't mind signing it - he did!!!

It is really great, and as I have not one but TWO car cakes for tomorrow, I am very grateful it came out when it did.

I highly recommend it. Mike (and his shop) are the best.

Thanks for the update! I love his cakes. They are so clean looking and perfect. I wish food network would give him a show. Duff is fine but I think Mike takes cakes to a whole other level.

Thanks Wrightway!

Bellatheball, I totally agree. I watch Duff but only to see Geof and Mary Smith. I'd watch - nay, be transfixed by - a show starring Mike. I think it was Duff who once said that "Mike McCarey is from another planet." How true. I'm such a groupie, haha!
