Australian cake maker Margie Carter, a well-known cake artist, has perfected a 3D car cake of the classic 1957 Chevy Bel Air Sport Coupe. Margie began cake decorating in 1988 when the demands of big city Sydney cried for a creative cake decorator. Now known around the world as a leading cake maker and decorator, Margie spends much of her time teaching the fine art of creative cake decorating.
We found this video on Youtube and was amazed at the skill level that Margie showed in recreating this American classic in egg and flour form. Realistically life-like, her copy of the Bowtie classic covers all the major features of the nameplate, right down to the grill emblem.
We were amazed at the possibilities so we did a google search to find out how many other cakes we could find. We found a blog by Kami’s cakes that showed how to duplicated a 3D version of a 1967 black topped Camaro in all of it’s sugary sweetness. Step by step instructions accompanied the blog. This was enough to make us wish we had a birthday soon so we could justify ordering one of these delights.
Elizabeth Marek designed a cake that was modeled after the highly successful and very versatile 427 big block Chevy engine.If a ’57 Chevy Bel Air and ’67 Camaro weren’t enough, we found another confectionary delight from Artisan Cake Company.
Elizabeth ended up with a near life-sized engine, weighing over a 100 pounds. This german chocolate and yellow cake with fudge filling was true to the model used. To keep the cake lighter, Elizabeth used rice cereal on the headers, air filter and other parts that she claimed not to know the names of. Anyone that can produce that amount of detail certainly knows more about engine parts than she is letting on.
