Porsche 911 Turbo Car Cake Tutorial
I admit, I don’t love making car cakes. Especially cakes like the Porsche 911 Turbo Car Cake because it’s SO well known and loved by it’s fans, if I don’t get it perfect, they will know. That’s a lot of pressure.
Even more pressure, this cake is being made for a guy that MAKES Porsches for a living. He’s busy customizing one for a high end client and of course what better way to celebrate than a cake that looks exactly like the car. Everything is exactly as specified, even down to the brand of the tires, the paint color and the shape of the side view mirrors.
Over the years I have developed a few techniques to help me keep my proportions perfectly, speed up the process and nail that design so my clients are happy and I get to keep my sanity.
