I've got an order for a 3-D truck for next week. I'm really not sure where to begin. I really can't figure out how to give the illusion that the truck is acutally raised off the ground. Any ideas, suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I'm going to go a test cake this weekend. icon_cry.gif

Once you decide how big it should be, make a platform for the cake out of foam core board using the shape of the truck. Use clear 3" pillars glued to the underside to give the clearance for added wheels. (I always place the pillars inside and behind where I know I will place the wheels so they don't really show.)

For the truck, make a pattern for yourself for the sides. After stacking the cake, place the pattern up to the sides and cut around. Repeat for the front and top. Hope this helps!

Yes, this helps. Thanks a bunch. Any pointers for the the windows and windshield? I was considering isomalt but have never worked with it and I'm not sure how it will work.
