To give you an idea of what im looking for I was asked to make a "hunters cake" and they had requested to try and incorporate a Chevy pickup truck on there. I cannot find any tutorials or really anything to kind of give me an idea on how to make a truck out of fondant. Do I use rice krispies? Any help would be great! Thanks

You don't give any idea as to how large this cake or the truck will be. Get yourself several pictures of the truck and just start playing w/the fondant until it starts to look like a truckicon_smile.gif Sometimes one can get away w/something looking cartoonish rathen than being exact down to every detail. This might be a cartoon time icon_smile.gif

Only have experience with attempting one GMC truck replica out of a fondant/gum paste mixture - not a whole lot of experience here, but size definitely plays a part in your planning - if it's going to be very big - I'd def go with rice krispie treat covered. If it's fairly small - you'd probably be okay with a fondant/gum paste truck. I was very fortunate that my clients provided tons of photos from lots of angles of the specific truck they wanted - so that was a HUGE help!
