I got a request for a birthday cake shaped like an army tank. At first I wasn’t sure what type of tank I wanted to make, so I searched online to get an idea. The bottom part is a 2 layer 1/4 sheet and I used an 8″ square pan for the top part, which was also 2 layers. I also used a ramekin to bake the round part on the very top.
It was all marble cake with vanilla frosting and a homemade MMF. I tinted the fondant with an avocado, gel, food coloring, then airbrushed in green, brown, black. I crumbled graham and animal crackers to use as the sand.
I was pleased with the turnout, and so was the birthday boy.
