Ok - so it's not a disaster YET! lol But my stomach is already starting to turn a little...lol. I've got to do this dang motorcycle cake for next saturday & I can't seem to get the stupid pan!!! I was outbid yesterday on ebay for one...the person paid over $40 for it...INSANE!!!! Right now I'm bidding on one, but I had to put my bid in way early because my husband & I are going fishing out in the Gulf of Mexico at 7am tomorrow (without our 3 kids...yaaayyyy!! ) and I won't be around to play the bidding game right before it's ending... I always get good deals by putting my bid in just a minute or even seconds before it's ending. So if I don't win this pan, then I have only two choices: 1- buy the pantastic pan, which I'm not crazy about. I've heard good things about how they cook and all, but the design of the motorcycle is a little too old-fashioned for my needs. The bday guy's bike is more closely resembled in the wilton motorcycle pan, so that's what I'd really like to have. OR choice 2- try to do a bct....never done one before but willing to try. Only problem is I can't seem to find a decent black&white drawing or clip art of a motorcycle!!!!! I have 3 graphics programs & all I can find are very cartoony or juvenile ones or ones that are too "sketchy" looking and don't have the definition I need to do a bct from. Searched online only to get the same results.
I want to just scream!!!!!!! lol Why does wilton have to constantly be retiring pans??? It seems like the only time I need one, it's a retired one!!
Haven't even turned my oven on and this cake's already falling apart!!!
I will check my clipart Cd's and see if I can find one. The other option would be to have an edible image made. That would be really easy!!! I will post back if I find a usable pic!
Thanks, Traci...that's so sweet of you! I would probably do an edible image, but this customer specifically asked me not to. I said no problem, didn't think it would be....now it is....aaaarrrgggg!!! lol
Here are a few links to motorcycle pics. When I'm looking for something simplistic for a BCT, I include "coloring pages" in the search, e.g. motorcycle coloring pages.
Hope this helps!
You could do a Google Image search for MOTORCYCLE.......it's always worked for me.
THANK YOU ALL SOOO MUCH!!! I'm going to print them out and see which looks like the best to do a practice one with. I thought about doing it tonight, but I've been out in the gulf fishing with my DH all day....sooooo sunburnt!! And still have the rocking back and forth sensation/illusion...don't have my land-legs back on yet. We were out on the water from 7:30 this morning until 8 pm tonight!! That'd be a funny bct if I tried to do it now!!! lol Imagine - a seasick motorcycle bct...lol
Thanks again! I really appreciate your help
