Tim's 1939 Buick Special 70th Birthday

Project Description

Do you sell this cake? No, just for fun Share a little about the materials, processes, and techniques used to create this cake My sister asked me to make a replica of Tim's 1939 Buick Special for his birthday. I took Mike's Classic Cars class and got a ton of tips and info to help me out with this project! LOVED the class! I used a classic white cake and the buttercream cake from Mike's class. Very tasty stuff by the way! I used the red Satin Ice fondant and I do not have an airbrush so I dry brushed the color on. Used the Red Velvet color dust. Took the cake outside on a table and dusted it out there so I could get all the excess off without making a mess all over my kitchen ;-). Super fun class... and the cake was a huge hit! What are you most proud of? When we served the cake everyone said it was even better tasting... that compliment always makes me smile! What advice would you give someone starting this project? Take Mikes Class... take your time and enjoy it. If you can get the blueprints do it.... I could not so my car was not to scale like I would have liked it to be.
