So the 2nd pic is the inspiration and the 1st pic is my interpretation (minus the topper). The fondant looked ok, a few small bubbles in places, but then I dont know what developed bigger bubbles and cracks all over. I dont do the original any justice but I'm still proud of this though! If anyone has any fondant suggestions I'd love to hear them!

my cake actually almost got towed away I was in the process of loading and a tow truck had me hooked and ready to roll! I went completely hysterical on the driver and he was nice enough to drop the car and drive away. what a nice guy.... icon_biggrin.gif

Stunning cake! Did you braid the fondant for the sides. It's just beautiful and glad the tow truck guy was a stand up guy!

Your cake is absolutely awesome. When I scrolled down to see and saw your cake, I thought it was the original!!! Way to go. I love the tow truck driver story. You got lucky!!

I actually like your version of the cake better than the original.
