National Lampoon Vacation 50Th Birthday Cake
This is a carved station wagon, the Truckster, that was in National Lampoon Vacation. The elements were made out of gum paste. The challenge on this cake was taking it on a real 6hr car drive. It survived well.
This is my contribution to the March issue of DIY Weddings magazine. The cake was inspired by the elements of a classic garden with strong architectural features and lavish floral motifs. The Bas relief angel, reminiscent of ancient carved key stones, is made from gum paste and assorted mold pieces, cut and assembled to create the windblown hair and floral crown. Over fifty sugar flowers and foliage surround the top of a lattice fence made from a 50/50 mix of fondant and gum paste. The tiers are covered with a concrete texture made from a fondant mixture and desiccated coconut. The sugar flowers include; Ranunculus, Cosmos, Simple Roses, Anemone, Trailing Petunia, Day Lily, Hydrangea, Jasmine, Amaranth, Ivy, Fern and berries.
Seamus The Leprechaun
For the week that’s in it: Happy St. Patrick’s Day, folks Seamus is made from Belgian Chocolate Mud Cake and Rice Krispie Treat and stands 45cm tall. The carved cake is pretty much the torso. His legs, head and hat are RKT. While the hat and legs are covered in sugarpaste, the covering and facial features are modelled from a 1:1 blend of Saracino modelling paste and Vera Miklas’ modelling chocolate. His hands and ears are also modelling chocolate.
