Race Car Birthday Cake

So the main reason I've not been around dA much lately, have been failing at replying to your comments and notes and at just generally being a CV, is because over the last month I've gotten a random weird influx of commissions. Like so weird. I haven't received a commission all year and now I randomly have 6 of them. So basically my life has involved standing in the kitchen staring at cake for a month.

This is one of the cakes I was commissioned to do for a little boy's 3rd birthday. Their family was actually one of the first people to comission me back when I made to cakes for his 1st birthday.

The brief for this one was for a simple yellow racing car with black stripes. On the front and back they wanted number plates with "Viyasan" (the boy's name) on them, and the number 3 on the sides of the cake.

The cake is a moist chocolate cake I carved by hand, then layered and crumb-coated in chocolate ganache, then coated in a layer of whipped chocolate ganache. The rest is fondant.

More photos of the cake and the progress shots at my food blog.

MMMMMM. I've always thought cars looked tasty, because I'm slightly strange. And this now makes me entirely serious when I say "That car looks sooooooo tastyyyyyy" *q*
