I got a request for a mustang with smoke coming out of the exhaust and I don't have a clue. Does anyone know how to make this happen. I told my customer I would let her know in a few days. Thanks for any help you can give me.

I did something similar once using blue cotton candy. Unfortunately I didn't get a picture. icon_sad.gif

I, too, was going to suggest cotton candy. Or maybe some spun sugar, if you can somehow work it in to that type of swirl (just brainstorming, as I've never spun sugar before). Sounds like a neat project! Good luck with it!

I do not have a business, so this may sound silly. I was thinking manipulate marshmallows into how you want it to look and dust with some gray color.

smoke as in it looks like smoke and puffs and stuff....

or just fake smoke that just sits there -- sort of like a cloud of cotton candy (which just happens to be the method in this case if need it to be edible, or cotton balls stretched out if not)

for first one, it's the old dry ice trick.

hose through cake to something that can hold hot water and dry ice and has a lid with opening to connect hose to. drop ice into hot water through opening for hose, connect hose and you have smoke.

Thank you all, she wanted to have it look like real smoke. I will try to see how I can work the dry ice. If anyone else has any suggestions I would appreciate them.
