I have been asked to do a cake for a friends hubby, and he owns an autobody shop. She wants something related to autobody......and all I could come up with is a sheet cake that would look like a windshield with a crack in it. Oh, and I really have no idea how I would go about making it look like that! Any suggestions would be appreciated.

How about a car with a fender or door coming off, dented in, or missing all together?

I'm wondering if you just make a standard car cake, and then maybe you could make a windshield by making sugar glass. If you cook it a little longer, it will start to lose its transparency. While it's cooling, you could add a crack. Then just prop it up / place it on your car cake.

Good luck!

Good ideas! Working on a very small budget however. I'm gonna think about the sugar windshield some more! Might be able to do something with that. I'm thinking broken glass?

You could use a gelatin sheet or edible varnish (in recipes) for the windshield. A little easier and economical icon_smile.gif
