11  COOKING / Dessert / Re: The King from Cars. My first full cover fondant (and made my own) on: September 02, 2008 10:15:11 AM
LOL This is excellent! My nephew was looking over my shoulder (he's almost 3) and had a fit! "OOOOOO THE KING!!!!" Then I told him it was a cake and he said "Yup thats MY birthday cake!!" Hahahah I don't think I can possibly do anything this creative, so I'm in trouble lol. Great job, it looks FANTASTIC!

They aren't really hard just time comsuming. If you can get your pieces in the shape of the car then you are all set. The fondant was easy to make (if you have the wrists for it LOL) and tied the whole thing together. The eyes are M & M's, the wheels are chocolate covered mini donuts and then the tail fin is a piece of the donut box cut to shape and covered in fondant. If you do decide to make it and have any questions PM me I'm always happy to answer them. I checked your local but PA is too far for me to travel to help LOL

They all look great. I think I like the sandwhich the best, it looks very realistic and I don't think I have ever seen one before.  Great job for a first fondant

So cute! But didn't the green icing make your mouth green? Both large and mini cookie flowers look awesome! I would've eaten one (or 12)!

I didn't notice anyone running around with green teeth LOL

I wound up eating 2 myself they were pretty yummy I used a triple chocolate cake mix for the cupcakes because I was short on time to make some from scratch

This is great!  Was it hard to make your own fondant?  And did you get a cake pan already shaped like this or did you improvise to get your own shape?  Anyway, I think it is good enough to sell, so if you ever did need the extra money, I think you have a talent for it.

I generally free form all my cakes as they don't make too many 3-D pans. This was a 9x13 cut and sculpted.

As far as the fondant, I would not say it was hard no but I have carpal tunnel so I paid for it that night after all that kneeding. I would make it again in a heartbeat if I could get someone to kneed it for me LOL

Thank you for the compliments too

I love all the posts on here from the Hello Cupcake book. This weekend I got to try my hand at one of them

base coat

Yes those really are purple counter tops in my kitchen  Grin

The cookie layer

lesson learned put cookies on right after base coat if frosting dries they don't stick well and you may need to add more frosting

The full size cookies

The mini cookies (I thought they looked better)

And the whole patch

I must admit I had trouble with the frosting in the zip lock. It's going to take practice getting used to no tip decorating. First the cut was too small then it was too big and about half way through I realized I was holding the bag the wrong direction LOL  oh well everyone at the picnic liked them. I found them easier to eat after the cookies got a little soft.

Enjoy, comments always welcome

Okay here is another cake from me. Still only make them for friends and family though they urge me to do it professionally I don't want to lose the joy I get from it by making it a job. Besides I don't know that they are good enough to sell. Anyway for your viewing pleasure here is The King from Pixar's Cars movie

and here is the inside (mixed in blue sprikles)

Comments and criticisms always welcome  Smiley

the dress is great and I love the fabrics together.  Smiley

Nice tats too from what I can see. That must be a pretty big chest peice.

Yup great idea and it saves a lot of cutting taping and covering with foil like I usually have to do, plus it's clear so you can see through it.  Grin

The pepermint didn't give you any problems? I was worried the oil would break down the mixture.

I'm doing King this weekend and I'm curious to know what your Mom used as a base under the car. It shows in the cut picture. I have done tractors and stuff in the past and always wound up building a little box and covering it in foil but I'm always looking for new and possibly easier ideas.

I use donuts for wheels too....wish they came in smaller packages LOL While I like being about to pick out the best four for the cake I always wind up eating the rest of the box  Undecided
