I have made a couple of sculpted cakes as a gift to friends, but this was my first car. I decided to add the traffic cones after I thought it sloped to one side- My excuse was a flat tyre!

Great cake for a petrol head.

hi! i am Anne (hence vANNilla) - two 'N's autocorrect WILL autocorrect - grrrrrr I can most often be found cooking up a storm in the kitchen,(with my trusty thermomix) behind a camera or a kindle. If you are a traveller/photographer my bog is @vannilla http://vannillarock.wordpress.com If you have come as a baker my blog is http://vannillarock.com i studied economics in Edinburgh in the early 70's; now retired from a day job, on paper i have plenty of time to explore the blogosphere and enjoy the shared experiences of others. like every other retiree i know we wonder how we fitted in a day job. I split my time between Guernsey,. In the Channel Islands -a 20-odd square mile island with 60thousand+ inhabitants- and Phoenix, Arizona. The mix is perfect- the former is beautiful but attacks of cabin fever are never too far away. Arizona, on the other hand IS king of the open road and has THE biggest bluest sky EVER. my blogs revolve around baking (vannillarock) and photography/travel if you like what you see please do start a conversation :)

    • Depends on experience and having made buttercream, modelling chocolate in advance. Do over 2 days not including the day you want it. Thanks for stopping by

    • Thank you. Total hours is tricky to calculate as I did it over three days ( not three while days!) cakes baked layered and crumb coated on one afternoon. Then the othe buttercream layers and fondant with shaping, another few hours. Then the fiddly bits. I guess if you do them all the time 6 hours is a possible ball park figure. Thanks for stopping by.
