I am making a cake with a honda civic replica as a topper. The actual car itself will only be about 7" or so..... I was thinking maybe mold the basic shape out of gumpaste or fondant or even a mix???
Also should I paint on the windows or stick them on with fondant?? My only worry with sticking them on is... I don't want the windows to be popping out of the car...
any help, instructions, or tips would be greatly appreciated!!
no one with any help at all
if you have excellent sculpting skills, go for it with the gumpaste/fondant mix of 50/50. If it is going to be smaller, I'd probably paint the windows on, but that's only because it would seem like a lot more work for such a tiny piece of decor.
I hear ya on the fondant windows though. if you don't get them thin enough or just right, it will seem like they are popping off of the car.
Sounds like a great idea, however! I would love the see the finish product- I just may try to make one myself for fun!!
Also- a matchbox car would be a good model for you rather that just looking at a picture on one.
hey . maybe do it with a Honda civic standing car . not just one side of it being shown but all of the sides .. I think that would look much prettier than that..
yes i did a 3-D fully standing car and molded it out of half gumpaste n half fondant and i painted it silver with luster dust. i have begun to cut out the windows out of very thin black fondant so we'll see how it goes.
