I know it takes practice and experimenting. But I was hoping that there was a book with hints and tips.

Thanks for your reccomendations. Seems all of my groom's want hot rods lately.

Thanks,

Julia

I don't know of a specific book on 3D carving but i do like Confetti Cakes by Elisa Strauss...its very easy to follow and she has a lot of 3d cakes in there. HTH!!!

I can also recomment debby Brown's books. All advice I can give you is to freeze the cake before you carve. Less crumbs and it works much easier. I enjoy doing 3Ds

Thank you for the suggestions. I have both Lindy smith and debbie brown. I have actually carved cakes before (and freezing was a great idea). But I thought msybe there would be a book---How to car 3d cars....that would tell me all the easy ways or something. Grasping at straws i know....but I thought I would ask. I think I might check out you-tube.....any suggestions there?

Thanks a gazillion. Julia

I have carved a few 3D cars from Lightning McQueen to the latest Ferrari. I just do it and hope for the best. It helps to have a man next to you to help you on the technical issues, but just to a point icon_biggrin.gif Good luck

I need to make a jeep, an astin martin, and a muscle car of some kind. I really can carve, or I would not have accepted the order. I just thought i would see if there was a book so I could do some reading to make it easier.

How about Mike McCreary's new DVD? I think you can call him (go to his website for the number) and order it.
