I made this Police Car Cake for a contest at a local fair, in Freehold New Jersey. I made this specific cake because I have volunteered for the D.a.r.e. Program in my town, Manalapan, NJ. and just appreciate what they do for our kids. The Manalapan High School Students , along with a local GMC Dealer customized this car for D.A.R.E.
First thing I did was make the pound cake, in two oblong pans. Then froze the cake so it was easy to carve. I carved it and shaped it into the car shape I wanted. Then I coated it with Butter Cream, and set it in the fridge. I wanted the car to be realistic so I came up with the idea to cut a hole in the roof of the car, and put flashing earrings in there. I then layed the fondant over the car, and cut a small circle where the earring were to give it the effect that the lights were flashing.
I sprayed the car orange, and made the black hood, and black stripes with fondant (freeform), although now I feel it would have looked nicer to color fondant first. I used gray colored fondant for the windows then spread with black sparkle food coloring to make it shiny. I did the same on the orange color as well.
Hope you like this cake! I had fun making it
