Ok I want to make a Chevy Nova cake for my sons Graduation next month. Not even sure where to start, would like to carve it and cover with fondant. What would I use for the wheels? I watch all the shows and see it done all the time, I have made many cakes but never carved one. Any suggestions or ideas would greatly be appriecated.

You could start with the Wilton Cruiser 3D car pan. If you don't have that then you could even start with a cake and carve it out in the shape that you need it. This site helps with carving out a car using just a cake and no 3D cruiser pan! It is a Lightening McQueen car but you can use the technique to carve the shape you need. Here's the link:


You can use rice krispy treats covered in fondant for the wheels and make the tire imprints using the end of a paintbrush and alternate pushing it into the edges of the tire. Hope this helps you out a bit!

Not sure if you made this already or not but, I have made a few car cakes and what I do is find a profile picture of the car and blow it up to whatever size car you need and use it as a template and carve from the side. Also use the blown up pic to make your support as it will show you wherebto place the cutouts for the wheels. I also made tires from Rkt and cut them with a circle cutter before they harden and then cover them with fondant.

Hope this helps,
