So tonight I am attempting to make a replica of my sons Honda Accord for his 21st birthday. I have a "small" clue of what I am doing but that's it. This moring I stacked the cakes and cut out a template. I am soooo scared to start cutting. Are there any tips/hints anyone can offer. This is my first attempt and I dont have time to rebake. So I have to get it right.
Take a little off at a time, and step back and away from it periodically to see how it is shaping up.
good point - THX!
I recently made a Mini Cooper for my husband's birthday (in my gallery). I started off with loaf-shaped cakes which reduced some of my carving. That first cut, which for me was the angle of the windshield, was scary! But I cut a little less than I though I might need so I could trim more after looking at it (from every angle, several times!). Good luck!!
Oh, and put it in the freezer for a bit before you start carving to make your cuts easier. (Sorry -forgot to add that part!)
