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.
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
Rolan Winbeckler also have a booklet out.....
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 Good luck
Ugh! my DH is mr picky I would NEVER get done.
I think I will take pictures from all angles and jsut carve away. So much for the easy way. there never seems to be one anyway!
absolutely. Goodluck and post the result
What type of car must you make?
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.
Robin! That is exactly what I wanted! Thank you sooo very much! Julia
whats the website? I wanna see
Mike's dvd is what I was going to suggest too! It's gotten some really good reviews here. I don't have it personally but it's on my list !
Wow, I can't believe that cakes. Wow, wow, wow. Good luck with you cars.
I agree, buy Mike's DVD!!
