Hey people, I have had a request to make a car cake on a rectangle cake that looks like a road with grass around the edges...
The car I have no problem doing as 3D is sort of my thing, but how on earth do I make grass and a road thats edible??
Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!!!
I will try this again...didn't work first time.
I made a bus cake a while back. To get the "road" under it I covered a board with green fondant and then put a strip of black fondant (start with chocolate fondant and add black to it) down the center of the green fondant. Down the middle of the black fondant I placed narrow strip of yellow fondant to. To get the "grass" tuffs you can use a tip #233 in various locations around the "road".
Attached is a link to my bus cake.
For the grass you could use the grass looking tip and pipe it! Tip: #233
Check out how to:
For the road - fondant like said above would work great or you could use oreo crumbs and pipe yellow lines... Or use Yellow fondant on top of the oreo crumbs.
For kids cakes I like to use candies the represent things - it's alway fun too!
