VW Car Cake

Just got back from a week in Sydney. While there I attended the Novelty Masters Course at Planet Cake. Planet Cake car cakes are a minimum of $1,000au.... I now know why!!!!

It was so incredibly technical as this had to be to scale of the real thing. I learnt heaps... especially NEVER to take a car order LOL

Great bunch on the course too, look forward to staying in touch with them :O)

Chocolate mud cake, with chocolate ganache covered in fondant. All edible.

I completely agree! Car cakes are very time consuming...this was turned out great though. Fabulous work!

Hi GV, we 'painted' it with a product that they have at Planet Cake. It is called a Flan Gel... the stuff they brush over fruit flans etc. You could also use Confectioners glaze. You only need a thin coat, mine was a little thick I think.

:O)
