cake gave me the challenge of creating a 3D Dirtbike cake. He asked for a Yamaha YZ450F doing a wheelie on a cake with water, grass, trees, etc.
The cake was no problem. I actually have leftover trees from another cake in the past. The Bike was the hard part and making it do a wheelie was another issue altogether.
I inserted a straw into the bottom of the bike at an angled position to make it do the wheelie and I used one of my decorating tools, an inverted flower nail placed under the cake, to hold the straw in place from below. I may or may not get my flower nail back the next time he orders a cake.
If I had started making the bike a few days earlier I wouldn't have had so much trouble getting it to stay together. It needed a lot of drying time for it to set solid enough for me to hold on to for painting.
Over all, for a first attempt, I do like how it turned out. I can't wait to find out what my next challenge will be.
