I have a request for a vw bug. I've looked at pictures here on cc and pm'd at least two people, I think three actually, who made really great looking vw cakes and after nearly a week haven't received anything back. They may not be on this site much anymore, I don't know. I just know I need lots of help, pan size/shape, how many layers, best way to go about carving in order to get the shape, lots of help. Anyone out there that is willing to answer my questions I would be so grateful! Thanks

Hi Mike McCarey has a dvd called Cakenology worth every penny. Teaches you how to carve a car cake. Good luck.

Highly suggest that DVD of cakenology!! I ordered it a week ago..it's $40 but it's a long, step by step, awesome DVD and it's soooo worth the penny. MY hubby loved it too and he isn't about cakes so much like I am..lol..You GOTTA GET IT! It is sooo good and I never order DVD's but I had to get this after I had to do car cakes..and i"m doing my third one next month possibly! It's a forever DVD trust me!

Wow! That is a great video. It has helped so much. However, I'm wanting to cover the cake in fondant and I'm wanting a full beetle, not a convertible. Thank you so much for that link!

Wilton's car pan looks similar to a VW bug.

You'd only have to carve a little here and there instead of starting with blocks of cake.

Then just make the cake a little higher and carve it with a hump in the middle for the roof. It would be easier to cover it with fondant that way too. I made a 3D train cake a while back and I just covered the whole thing with the main color of fondant that the train was going to be, then just added strips and blocks of fondant to make the details. A little piping here and there too.
