I've made a mini cooper before...and that was rounded..not elevated..
I've also made an F1 car..no dramas...bang flat right on the board..easy shape to sculpt..not many detailed edges..
And then came the MR2 sports car...I still cry just thinking about it.. *laughs*
Last weekend was a nightmare and a half for me.
First...I baked the wrong cake *slaps head* HAhaha...Leanne wanted a Chocolate chip cake..and I baked a chocolate mud...
alright..no dramas..bake a new cake..
Sculpted the new cake...covered it with fondant etc..etc...
...the shape of the car is now wrong...!!! *pulls hair off of head* I couldn't make it look like an MR2! Despite the many hours I tried fixing it up; it still looked like a hatch back! *tear*
I called up Eddy and Jo for their opinion...they both thought it didn't look like an MR2 at all..
*sigh* what was I to do; it was due in 2 days!
I couldn't resculpt it as I needed it to feed 20 people...and the cake is too small as it is! *head began to ache*
I had to bake a new cake. Made a caramel circular cake as a base...stacked the sculpted chocolate chip car elevated on top...and moved on. *Ingenious!* hehe ;)
...continued working on the cake...The car began to slightly sag 1/2 way through... *faints*
At this rate...I was going nuts trying to keep myself together; it was hard to convince myself Leanne was going to be happy with the cake she ordered from me.
On the side...I was having hours of Bollywood dance practice for Saturday...
Nothing more could be done. I gave this cake my last ounce of effort...I just really hoped she'd be satisfied...
Saturday morning came... I touched it up all I could..
...AND SHE WAS!!
YAY!!! She even wrote me a sweet email to tell me how they loved the cake!
The cake was meant for her boyfriend (owner of the MR2)...and the sexy girl on the side was made to resemble her in a hot race queen outfit.
Thanks so much for the effort and time put into the cake, we sat there just staring at the cake ooh-ing and aah-ing at it and for the longest time nobody wanted to cut it because it was just too pretty!!! It’s really amazing how you captured EVERY SINGLE detail down to the windscreen washing things on the hood.
Thanks so much… greatly appreciated.
I'm just so happy everything turned out well.
The hours of freaking out was a waste of time!...silly silly me... *giggle*
