Here Comes The "Bugatti Veyron"... Fastest Car In The World!

Commissioned by Chermayne who wanted to surprise her husband Marcus with a simple design birthday cake topped with a sugar art model of the sports car, Bugatti Veyron. Marcus loves high performance cars, and what better way to impress him than with the Bugatti Veyron, the  fastest car in the world with a top speed of over 400 km/h! 

She provided me these pics of a fiery red Bugatti Veyron which threw me into a state of panic as I have never modeled a "non cartoon" sports car before. 

Here's my version of the Bugatti Veyron, crafted in sugar!

With adjustable side mirrors and hand painted details!

Happy Birthday Marcus!
 Marcus's comment? "Impressive!". : )

Solo Barney

Yes, I do take commissions for sugar art figurines alone. This one was commissioned by Joey who wanted a "sitting down" Barney.


... the purple dino!

Goodbye Barney! Into the box you go and off to your new owner. I will miss you...

Romeo Turns 2 And He Loves "Cars" Too!

Romeo turns 2 and I had the pleasure of making his birthday cake again! This cake was commissioned by his mom Brenda who requested for a Disney's "Cars" themed cake as Romeo loves the cars in the movie. She provided some visuals from the new "Cars 2" movie for my reference and here's the result! 

Sugar art figurines of Lightning McQueen (red Ferrari) and his girlfriend, Sally Carrera (blue Porsche). All details were hand painted.
"Romeo" on the fondant plaque of the Cars logo! Hand painted with edible silver for the metallic effect.

Cobblestone effect on the cake board and checkered flags.
Caution... winding road ahead!
Here's looking at you from the tracks! Surface dusted with edible silver to look like asphalt.

Inspiration to have Romeo's name in the Cars logo came from this!
