When we are asked to create a 3-D replica of a car our of cake we do a lot of research and calculations. We want to make sure that the cake comes out actually looking like the real thing. It is a scale model made out cake!
This time we were asked to create the 2011 Lamborghini Aventador out of chocolate cake.

Now the next part will show and prove this is all cake! We sometimes take in progress pics of our work and this time we are going to share the process with you.
so what you didn't see is that before we started shaping the cake is that we baked it, layered it with vanilla buttercream and chilled it.
then the magic happens!
|shaping the side profile|
|checking out the proportions|
|carving more off the cake|
|checking the lines of the hood|
|haha! that's me checking the backend and giving it a final inspection|
|time for buttercream coat|
|after the cake chilled again and the buttercream was firm it was time to cover it in fondant. |
the fondant was tinted peach (I over estimated the amount of fondant needed)

|time to etch in the lines of the car|
|giving it another inspection for it gets its paint job - I tend to make funny faces when I'm concentrating|
|time for paint - it's color is airbrushed on for an even coat|
