I want to make a cake for my boyfriend in the shape of that car, because that is our car.
And she is a very special car and I was planing on making a cake to cellebrate that we have had her for a year. This anneversiary is in may 2013 so I have a lot of time, and that is why I wanted to start practising as soon as possible.

what do I use? step by step instructions anyone? tips and ideas and so on.

help please

Here's a tutorial on how to do a car cake that I did a couple of years ago. You'll have to do the specific car template from pictures,but this will give you the idea of how to do it. http://www.acaketorememberva.blogspot.com/2010/04/car-cake-steps.html

Hi Giz,

If you can get your hands on Mike McCarey's Cakenology Vol1: Car Cakes DVD it is very informative. Mike walks you through making a car cake from start to finish.

You can use fondant or modelling chocolate, either will work. Or a combination of both.

When i made a 350z car I found a template of the roof sides, back, and front online. I just searched 350z drawing. Then i baked a 9x13in cake cut into 3 parts ( into a T) and stacked and filled then stuck the drawing on the side of the cake and carved it to the picture. Helped a lot.
