Chev Camaro 21st Birthday Cake

Standard

Chevrolet Camaro

My sister asked Me too make a special cake for my nephews 21st birthday.
The design was a Chevrolet Camaro and Gluten Free as well on top of everything else…and Big enough too feed 60 people.
So I set out and cooked 6 Gluten free mud cakes……3 per layer into a huge rectangle tin….. took over 2 hours too cook , then the 2nd batch of 3 cakes in thee tin again another 2 hours too cook…..Ahhh finally the GF cakes are made.

I then made some chocolate ganache while the cakes cooled…and got my husband too help me lift then onto the board with ganache in between to 2 layers.

Then set out with the carving too make the shape of the cake, the cake is a bit wider than normal….but need too amount too be stable.

Craig (hubby) was helpful with getting the shape right……and then set out too cover all the mud cake with the rest of the ganache.

Finally I mixed up the white and blue fondant and set out with covering the whole cake with it….Then added all the extra’s out of fondant ie : lights , windows, wheels, bumpers and so on.

Finally after 5 and half hours the decorating if finally done.

SO Happy 21st Birthday Dan
