Surprise Nissan Cake
I decided to surprise my dad's dealership with a cake, because I got a new car! A 2010 Nissan Versa. Because they were so nice to me, and because this year is actually the 45th year the dealership has been in business (from my opa and co-owner Nick to my dad and co-owner Nicolas) I made the cake with a Datsun Fairlady, which was a type of Z model from 1965, with a 2010 370z beside it, and their respective dealership signs.
I sculpted the cars with rice krispies, and then painted them with liquor and food colour powder. As you can kind of see, the 370z came out a bit streaky, and that is because of the vodka. Darn vodka! Lesson learned!
Either way, I'm pretty proud of how the cake turned out! And I learned a wicked tip: when sculpting with rice krispies, use coating chocolate to stick pieces together, and then to smooth out the lumps. But make sure you brush an even coat of chocolate on with a good sturdy brush. :D
