This week I'm recreating the 1917 fire truck pictured above in sugar and cake! There won't be any new posts this week, since 100% of my time is going in to making this cake a show-stopper. There are lots and lots of fine details!
If you'd like to share any of your posts, please stop by my linky party,
I look forward to showing off the finished cake on Sunday or Monday. In the meantime, here are some photos showing the process and progress up to this point:
|First we visited the fire truck and took loads of measurements and photos. Next, we built a scale model out of foam.|
|We began fabricating pieces out of gumpaste.|
|Then, started "gluing" it all together.|
|Coming together and up on "blocks" courtesy of the Girl Scouts.|
|Adding details like the grill...|
|And the "wooden" truck bed.|
|Still lots and lots of fine detail-work to go.|
To be continued...
