http://www.mikesamazingcakes.com/ Go to the bottom left photo and it will show you how to order the DVD. Seriously, he's a master. My cake is no prize but I can only imagine what it would have looked like without that DVD.

Cake is gorgeous, but I really think the prize is your commentary. Especially when you stuck your tongue out at the stain, lol.

Awesome job - I have the DVD and was amazed - but don't know anyone who will pay me enough to make this kind of cake - think I'd have to do it for my self - and I don't know that I have the time or money (or patience) to do it just for little ole' me icon_smile.gif

Thanks for sharing the pictures though - I think the end product looks great!

Thanks to everyone for the nice comments. It's always nice to hear feedback from other cakers (and I can take criticism too!! Really, I can.)

Imartsy, I wonder how much one would get for a carved car cake. I've never priced it out but something tells me I don't want to think about price/hour. icon_biggrin.gif

Grama, many thanks. My brother is a man of a few words. I think he liked it but he didn't say much about it to me. My nephews, niece and daughter loved it though so that made up for his reserved commentary. icon_razz.gif After so many hours, I offered to stab (er, I mean cut) the thing myself.

Oh, and because someone asked, the stains are still there. They are a very light shade of pale pink. Can't wait to see what colors they turn to next week.

Bellatheball, thank you so much for posting the pictures and your comments are hilarious!
That car looks awesome!
Please keep us updated on the stains next week icon_biggrin.gif

I will be making a MUSTANG on August and your steps are so easy to follow.thank you!

I have a couple of questions: why do you put modeling choc. and then fondant to do the cut outs? Why not fondant on fondant?
Is there a reason for that?
How did glue the modeling choc. to the fondant?

TIA

Casey, he may have. icon_biggrin.gif

Cakegirl, the modeling chocolate helps you create a little more defintion for the hood and, in Mike's words, if you put it under the fondant, it will look less "schloopy."
