I'm doing a Dukes of Hazzard themed groom's cake next week and the groom wants the car (matchbox sized) to be "flying" over a river. Any ideas on how to make this happen?
Blue colored wire under the car?
a real matchbox car or a fondant/gumpaste car?
A real matchbox car.
string around the car, suspended from the ceiling.
get real, dude. There's a particular law we have to go by. It's called the Law of Gravity!
Unless you smash the car into a building, then you can shove it into a building made of cake?
I'm sure it can be done....I was even thinking I might attach it to a clear plastic utensil jammed into the cake....I'm getting a little desperate..but the blue wire....maybe....where does one buy blue wire?
Look in the jewerly section of Hobby Lobby or Michaels for blue wire. Perhaps even in the floral section.
I have no idea where one buys blue wire. I was just thinking blue since it'd blend in with the color of the river.
Do you have white floral tape? I'd over floral wire (maybe a couple of pieces) with white floral tape and paint it blue.
Or maybe you could figure out how to attach a clear plastic straw to the car?
What about a clear plastic cocktail stir or a clear plastic straw.
wire hidden in what looks like a long trail of dirt and smoke coming off the back end of the car.
can curve wire
can anchor wire in cake and have it completely hidden.
Brilliant guys!!! Thanks so much, I knew you would have great ideas! Now, I'll see which one works best for me. Again, thanks!!!!
