How to make a 3D car cake


Hi Sugar Buddies!


I got back from the DOS in Winnie, Tx and boy did we have fun! Of course there was torrential rain and flooding while we were there. What is it with the severe weather everywhere I travel to? Maybe God is trying to tell me to stay my butt home? Nah.

So anyway, I am slamming busy this week , so I am pleased to present you with a guest entry from Karen in LA on her 3D car cake. Karen is a wonderful cake artist, and she does some really great 3D stuff.

Take it away Karen:


I usually try and find the original dimensions of a vehicle first. Then scale it down to where it will fit on a piece of paper (8x14).Then from there, I use a ruler to see the size of the tire space, space from bumper to start of tire, distance between tires then the distance between the back tire and the back bumper. Now I am able to get my dimensions for my board with holes inset for the tires to go up in. (I always do a paper template also in case someone needs one again!!!!)





Place the cakes on the board. Align the 'car template' up against the cake.





Then carve.




I do a lot of my details with icing build up instead of actually cutting into the cake, this makes it sooooo much easier! This isn't a very good pic, but you can see what is taking place. I did smooth it more after this pic was taken also!!!



While the paint is drying, I fix my little boards that are gonna go under the cake. So when it's dry, I place it on the 'taped on both sides' blocks so it doesn't go anywhere!!!!!

Then on to the painted and window details. Windows were fondant covered with an edible image. Gradient fill. Nothing fancy!!! Outlined with airbrush black and silver dust.

From here it is all details which take the majority of the time. The wheels were gumpaste painted black also!!!!


Here it is moved over to the cake board getting all the detail work done.




And the finished product!!!


----------------------------------


Thank you Karen for that great tutorial! You rock! Below is a picture of the first car cake I made using Karen's technique, but I used fondant. I was very happy with it!




---------------------------


You guys have a wonderful weekend and I will see you next week!

Happy caking!

Sharon

Choosing a car is bit difficult , since in the market wide range of cars are available. You need to consult an expert who can compare different branded cars. I prefer Eu Neuwagen to consult and get the right brand.

What is the support that is used under the car to give it a slight lift off the cake board?

I have to make a car cake today and I have a few questions. It looks like she used two layers of 11 by 14? Could it be done with two layers of 9 by 13? I'm assuming that it needs to be done with pound cake for stability?
Thank you!

After the clerk or bailiff has sworn in the jury, the case is ready to begin. If a plaintiff or defendant is pro se, that is, not represented by an attorney, then that party will perform the tasks of the attorney while representing himself or herself in the trial. Both attorneys may make opening statements explaining their client’s position and outlining the evidence they expect to present that will support their claims. These statements are not evidence and should not be considered as such. The witnesses for the plaintiff are then called and questioned by the attorney for the plaintiff and cross-examined by the attorney for the defendant. After cross-examination, the plaintiff’s attorney may reexamine some of the witnesses. After all the plaintiff’s witnesses have been called and all of the plaintiff’s evidence has been presented, the attorney will tell the judge that they plaintiff rests.

I used the car cake pan to make my god-daughter's 16th bday cake. We told her "here's your new car, dear." I used a pound cake recipe for the cake, covered it in fondant and added fondant accents like the windows, bumpers, wheels, and bow. Royal Icing wipers and car handles painted silver. It was placed on a larger sheet cake to look like a road.
Here's a pic of how it turned out. I'm sure there are directions for actually carving cake into a car shape but I opted for the easier method

I was just questioning if you have ever thought altering the layout of your site? It is exceptionally well composed. I simply love what you have said here but I think that you could do a bit more to let readers connect with your content better. You have got lots of content in your sites with very few images. I would suggest spacing it out better.
