This was the first major order I got this year, way back in January, so it was long anticipated! To see it finally come to life was really rewarding, especially since it has been one of the most challenging orders to date. I love cakes which involve having to 'sculpt' something as realistically as possible.
I'm really happy with the way it worked out, there were many areas I had to improvise where I hadn't done anything similar before, eg cutting into the bottom of the turntables to place 'rubber stoppers' at the corners, making the turntable needles stay straight and half-suspended and using black ready-dyed fondant icing - totally recommended as another alternative to painting on the black (which I mentioned earlier). I would have never been able to achieve such a solid black dyeing it from white, although my palms stayed black for a good 3 days :0) Totally worth it.
Oh, and it was also fantastic to have been there for the birthday boy's big night! Great party!!
