I'm planning to use the Wilton 3D car pan (not the flat one but the upright one) but I might just get brave and carve it myself. I'm looking for tips to help me with the fondant, it seems like it might be hard. And what about doweling? Will it need it?

Your tips and techniques are greatly appreciated, and if there are any tutorials out there could someone post a link or point me in the right direction?

Thanks so much!!

I did my first 3D carved cake a dew months ago and it dont think it was at all difficult to cover. Its really not that different from a normal cake. Im sorry i can be more helpful. I just made sure that i measured how big my fondant needed to be rolled out before hand, places it on and started smoothing from the top down. Good luck

You know, Mike at Mikes Amazing Cakes has a DVD out on carved car cakes that is very reasonably priced and AMAZING to say the least. You will learn more than you ever wanted to know about making 3D car cakes, but it's sooooo worth it! icon_biggrin.gif
