I have been going through my old pictures and found some Ferrari´s.
I´ll have to excuse the poor quality of the photo´s -and of the cakes, but it´s like everything else, practice makes perfect! -So i´ll just keep practicing ;)
2008: For a boys 3. birthday, a chocolate cake with chocolate buttercreme.
Placed on my, at the time newly purchased cakestand. They fit each other nicely i think! :)
2008: A confirmation cake for a young lad - a chocolate cake with raspberry mousse. This Ferrari insisted on really soft edges - there was just no way to "sharpen it up". Sometimes cakes have a will of their own! I´m sure some of you will agree.
2007: My first Ferrari - For a boys 11. birthday, a vanilla cake with strawberry mousse and "Toms" chocolateturtle ganache. -My old camera and i just weren´t that good friends!
I use the Ferrari Enzo as a model. I fill and stack the cake and then start carving away. If i cut off too much, i "glue" it back together with cake-crumble and chocolate-buttercreme.
I saw somewhere on the internet people using cardboard templates, that might make it easier to achieve the right shape.
