My fiance got a new job today at a auto body/collision shop. We're so excited, and I want to make him a cake to surprise him. He loves everything about cars and trucks, and he loves Fords. The thing is I'm kind of a newbie, so I need something kind of easy. Any suggestion would be appreciated.
What about the Ford logo? You could carve that out easily from a large sheet cake, and cover in blue fondant, accented with white fondant around the edges, and also use white for the lettering. You could even paint the white with silver luster dust to give it a chrome shine
You could do a big tire with some awesome rims? The shape is basic and you can emboss the fondant with tread marks to make it look real ...you could even write the shop's name on the tire like where the branding for the tire would be. The rims is where you could get the wow-factor Hope that helps!
Bob The Builder Cake is a cake you can make it easily ...........As you said He loves everything about cars and trucks.I Think your fiance will like it.
