I love your project is perfect. Would you mind share a tutorial on how did you make the lights and the details of the car because they are different from the details taught in the class. I've been struggling with how to make the lights for modern cars and your tutorial will certainly help me. Kudos!

Thank you - it was great fun to make. For the lights I cut the side and front views of the lights from my templates and pieced them together to create a single template which would wrap around the car a little. The headlights are cut from thinly rolled grey florist paste and stuck on with edible glue. I made circular indentations with small round cutters and painted them with light metallic silver. I then painted a darker metallic silver inside the circular indentations. The rear lights are made from red florist paste and attached to the car then painted with edible glue and dusted with red disco dust to give them a reflective look.
