So I got asked to make a cake for my boss at work. First they suggested a 3D Porsche, and after reading this, I decided that was a decidedly bad (read screw that no way in hell can I do that, ever) plan. So I set about making a Porsche crest from fondant and icing.
Instructions and Pics after the jump
I photoshopped up a Porsche logo outline and printed it out multiple times and then attacked them with scissors. I then rolled out some brownish fondant and placed the logo on top and began to trim away…
then the smaller middle piece
I then dusted the fondant with gold luster (edible) and a drop of yellow food coloring to get it more yellow gold colored, and left it out overnight to dry.
then the fun part (not). Decorating. This gave me insane hand cramps lol…
And then I made a Nigella Lawson Chocolate Fudge cake (which happens to be the best chocolate cake ever btw – I will post it later) and placed the Posche Crest carefully on top and shaped it a bit with my fingers because it was still a bit soft and the top of my cake was by no means flat (stupid icing skills)
I probably could have taken more pictures but I was so so tired and grumpy when I had finished I just wanted to go to bed lol.
