I've been asked to do a groom's cake and they want a maroon corvette. I have never made a sculpted cake. The closest I've come is cut letters out of cake. Any suggestions on construction(i.e. do I need to have it raised on the board to accommodate wheels, type of cake to use, etc.) I'm thinking I would need a denser cake. I did see a corvette cake pan on Etsy.
Search the tutorials here on CC for some ideas. There are some really great car cakes here
I made a Mini Cooper a while back - I'm not a big carver either and this was an early one!
I used a pound cake made in a large loaf pan as the basis for the carving, a pound cake is a nice dense cake to use,
I planned the size around the fact that i was using little RingDings covered in fondant for wheels. Oh Hostess and Drakes, I miss you so:(
Thanks! Great job on your Mini Cooper!
i have done a mini cooper cake. i started with a 10x10" chocolate mud cake. make sure before you sculpt, have printed copy of the car that you want to do. print a pic of each side and top. cut to use as a template. good luck!
There are also alot of really good tutorials on youtube for auto's .. just do a search for car cake tutorials .. Good Luck!!
