    My son likes mickey so I tried your cake. It was my first time working with fondant. I also had to make the black fondant myself because were I live they don’t sell it and I didn’t have time to order it. It came out well. I made the Marshmallow fondant but added chocolate to it then I used black gel for icing. It came out perfect. Thank you for your video

    Will the fondant stick to the other bits of fondant or does it need a bit of buttercream?

    • ann ann says:

      to make fondant stick to fondant just put a tiny dab of water on your finger and rub it on one of the pieces

  13. clarem says:

    hi the video I’m getting is 1.32 mins long and only shows as far as the covered cake board?

    • ann ann says:

      Hi clarem, seems to be working fine here, if you continue to have issues try watching on youtube.com/howtocookthat

  14. Nicole says:

    Hey, I have watched your videos and I love them, and I would like you to see if you can help me to make that cake, I leave you the pictures.
    if you think you are able to do it it’s for 150 people for a 1st year birthday :) hope you are able to help me thank you

    • ann ann says:

      Hi Nicole, have you watched the truck cake tutorial? that will give you some ideas of where to start. http://www.howtocookthat.net/public_html/truck-birthday-cake-how-to/ I suggest that you enlarge your pictures and cut out the shape of the side of your car for a cutting template for the cake. To make this beg enough for 150 people it will need to be a very big car. Think about cutting it into quarters, cut the quarter in half and then cut that piece into 17 pieces. The other option is to make a rectangle or tiered round cake base and then the car out of fondant as a decoration on top.
