3D car cake

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I need suggestions on how to make a 3d honda civic cake. I have never done anything like this before and I am kind of stumped as to where to begin! Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

If you have time to order Mike McCrary's Cakenology DVD -- I highly recommend it. He builds a car cake step by step.

I tried to find the link to the picture tutorial on flicker that I used. It was great but no luck. However, I also saw a picture tutorial on Susan Zambito's blog. It used the same techniques on how to make it. It shows to airbrush it but you can just use colored fondant if you want to. That's what we did. HTH good luck!

Hi I made a car cake and used
http://www.the-blueprints.com and searched for the car I wanted. It has all the details you need to make the car. I made templates in the size I needed and placed them on the cake to carve. I stacked my cakes with filling but did not do a crumb coat and froze overnight. Take a sharp knife and make small cuts so you don't make a mistake. Your indentations will have to be a bit exagerated to show through fondant.

I hope this helps you out. I have made a sherman tank and a VW car doing this.

I use the blue prints .com site also. its fantastic. I am getting to the point I love doing car cakes. I am working on a general lee Right now. My DH cuts out a thin wood template of the body style. I put it on the side of the cake and carve away. so easy.

Thanks for the information and blueprint site.  Unfortunately, I was unable to find blueprints for the car my grandson wants (porsche 914-6), but I'll continue searching.  If I can't find it, I'll have to make some kind of template from his model car.  I did find the specs on the car for various dimensions, so that helps.  Thanks for your helpful post!
