Did my first car cake last night (a carved police car) and my god it took HOURS (, from carving, to trying to frost the carved cake which was a task in itself, making the fondant, adding the detail...I dont ever want to a car cake again! For the time it took me, you would think it would look better than it does.

I know what you mean...just did one myself a few weeks back and took foreverrrrr. Yours turned out great and totally worth whatever time you put into it.

thanks girls. Yeah, this cake making thing can be really tiring and frustrating. icon_sad.gif But for some reason I keep on making em. lol. I guess I like the challenge of it. I nearly threw out the gold practice wedding cake I did a few days ago (the end result was nice, so good thing I didn't!). I was getting so angry, I kept bumping the frosting on the other tiers with my hand, or the spatula...and messing it up, and it was my own fault. The frosting on the tiers was getting uglier and uglier and I was so depressed. Seemed like nothing went right! It was really making me angry.
