Okay, I need to make a sketch of a cake for a man that likes to go jeep mudding. I was thinking of maybe a sculpted cake that looks like a hill with a lot of dips and whatnot and a jeep splashing or sliding in mud. The man lives about an hour from me and would like to see some ideas in the form of sketches. I need help--both with some other ideas for the cake and how in the world to sketch a hill or mud or whatever!!!
Do you want the jeep sculpted, too? It may be easier to send him pics of other cakes, rather than a sketch. I know that I can sketch a lot of things, but certain details are more difficult on paper then they are in icing!
I was going to attach a photo of a cake I did for my son... but I can't find it now! Sorry! I'll see if I can scan one and upload it.
no, the jeep doesn't need to be sculpted, just the hill/terrain I'm thinking.
Just an idea for you, you could make a double layer sheet cake. Cut out a big dip on one side of the cake, and fill it with chocolate fudge frosting and put a jeep in the mud, then have another jeep outside of the mud pulling the other one out. I know this happens a lot when we go with some friends of ours! Just an idea though.
