F1 Mercedes Cake by ginas-cakes F1 Mercedes Cake by ginas-cakes
Just finished this one last week for someone. It was a bit of a nightmare finding photo's that would help me out with the car, but found a few pics with enough detail on.
The plinth is a build up of sugarpaste that I rolled out and dried, then measured out to put on the cake. I couldn't get the icing rolled out with streaks, so I painted the wood effect on after with food colouring paste :)


If you would like to use this image for anything at all,
would you please let me know before you do so.....Thankyou..
:aww:

Thankyou very much :D

.....I am a fan of F1.......but mainly who's driving ;)

 This was the choice of the customer. I was supposed to make Hamiltons car....but noticed after that his car has the number 10 on it :doh:
