Neither of which am I “into”, but it was a customer order and actually a lot of fun!
She wanted golf cupcakes and a truck cake for her dad’s 60th… specifically a ’49 Chevy that looked like his truck!
For the putting green, I didn’t really have a cookie cutter for the shape I wanted so I polished off my Diet Wild Cherry Pepsi (one of the best things evah!!) and used some scissors and finger power until I had the shape I wanted. Worked like a charm!
Then I made the rest of the fondant decorations and once they had set to dry for a couple hours, I just “glued” them together with the tiniest dab of water.
Then I boxed them all up so they were nice and pretty! I get such a kick out of the cupcake inserts, makes me feel all professional and junk.
For the cake, I sketched out the sketch she sent me, so it could be the size I wanted. Then I cut out each individual piece and labeled it with the right color. I just laid each piece on the fondant and cut it out with a paring knife! Easy peasy!
After I had the cake frosted, I assembled my truck and piped on the words!
And now for an upclose of the silver! When I was just beginning it was looking pretty bland and flat grey. So I brushed on some silver dust (I forget the technical Wilton name), and it got all nice and sparkly and more truck-looking.
She seemed pleased with the cakes and cupcakes! Hopefully her dad was too. Either way, I got an apple dabble cake out of the deal! Yes, my customer brought me sweets! What??
