Blaze and the Monster Machines cake

Do you sell this cake? No, just for fun Share a little about the materials, processes, and techniques used to create this cake I followed the Classic Car course to make this cake for my son. There were no front, back, side, and top patterns available for Blaze (very new Nick Jr show), so I had to make my own from screen caps of the show.

Q&A with causticmuse

ambermezz6953307 asked:
What are the red sections on the top made of underneath the fondant?
causticmuse answered:
I just cut some card stock in the right shapes and covered them with fondant. I was short on time and needed something quick and flexible.
Jody Steele asked:
How did you make the blaze body with cake? I made two loaf pans thinking I could split one long ways and stack it then take another one and cut it in half the short way and stack them and then sculpt the circular front of the truck and cut on an angle for the back of cake? Thanks!
causticmuse answered:
I actually made three 9"x13" layers and cut/sculpted it following the techniques in the class. If you look at Blaze, his body (minus his windshield and that roll bar) is actually pretty flat and rectangular.
1968mkm5254092 asked:
What size was your loaf pan and do you think a strawberry cake can be carved for this?
causticmuse answered:
I used 9"x13" pans since the cake wasn't as long as the classic car in the class. IDK about strawberry cake... Maybe if it's as firm as the pound cake the instructor uses. I ran out of ingredients for the pound cake, and since I was in a rush, I made the third layer I needed with box yellow cake. Big mistake! The regular cake was not firm enough to handle the weight of the fondant and also wasn't dense enough to carve without crumbling.
tammiestr4515749 asked:
How did you make the wheels and the front windshield, roll bar, etc.? You did a great job by the way!!! Very talented!!!
causticmuse answered:
The wheels were rice Krispy treats covered in fondant. The windshield and roll bar were poster board cut to shape and covered in fondant as well.
sophieher10448034 asked:
How did you balance the body of the car so that is was off the cake board?
causticmuse answered:
The body was on a smaller cake board and rested on an upside down clear disposable good container -- I used one of those Gladware ones for lunch meat.
