i got asked to do a 1969 plymouth car cake..i have no idea where to start or how to go about it..but im sooo up to the challenge..ive always wanted to do a 3d car cake just never had the opportunity..so please any help would be awesome..should i freeze the cake?? should i use rice crispies as the tires??? any help would be soooo appreciated! thanks!!
I am currently working on my first 3d car so I can't help much but, I'm using both cake and rice treats. I'll keep you up dated and send you a picture try not to laugh to hard
i wont laugh ..i promise!! lol..im thinking of doing a tester just to see if i can do it..im worried cus they want it really detailed with a scoop hood..i have no idea what that is but ill ask my husband later,lol..im thinking to freeze it to carve it..good luck with your cake..cant wait to see it
I did a pratice and I need to do another one. But, I see where I went wrong but pratice makes perfect. ( i hope) About to make some rice treats now so I guess I'll start carving tonight but the details is important. Pull the picture up on the net that helps alot.
Maybe these links will help you, they helped me when I made my car cake.
Scroll down torward the bottom.
This one you can search for the car you are making and print out a template. You do have to registor to get the templates.
When is it due? If its a while from now I would strongly recommend Mike McCarey's car cake dvd. It is super helpful with the details. I just made my first car cake (actually it was a pick up truck) a couple months ago. I didn't have the dvd at the time but I had some step by step instructions from some very helpful people here on cc. And it turned out quite well. I have since purchased Mike's dvd and it is super helpful.
Here is a link to the truck cake:
Here is a link to the discussion that I had with other members:
The cake should definitely be chilled. Its easier to carve that way. You need templates of your model printed from the computer. I have found that I like making the wheels out of modeling chocolate. I didn't use any rice crispies. You can pm me if you have any questions.
wow..all those sites got me sooo excited..thanks everyone!! i cant wait to get started!!
one more question..how much should i charge for it..it looks like a lot of work..im guessing she wants it for up to 50 ppl
Does anyone have something like this for motoorcycles ??
