Tada! Rob was so nervous creating this cake. I think it turned out great! This is the fourth cake he's done. Yep, he's in charge of the *guy* cakes (helmets, cars, golf bags, etc).
It was sculpted out of three sheetcakes, covered in fondant, airbrushed, painted, details added on, and nerves shattered delivering this cake. A part of the side panel came down (about 4 inches long). Fortunately, I had buttercream with me. Unfortunately, it needed to be black, so we made a stop at Walmart to get black food coloring. A few minutes later good as new!
The client opened the door and her eyes got really wide and she said it was beautiful before we even had a chance to set it down.
It is very nerve wracking, but very gratifying when a customer oohs and aahs over their edible creation!
