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!!!

Thanks Sarah.

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.

Hey! icon_smile.gif

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... icon_smile.gif 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! icon_smile.gif
