Vintage Fire Truck Cake Has Me On A Bloggy Break...


This week I'm recreating the 1917 fire truck pictured above in sugar and cake! There won't be any new posts this week, since 100% of my time is going in to making this cake a show-stopper. There are lots and lots of fine details!

If you'd like to share any of your posts, please stop by my linky party,

I look forward to showing off the finished cake on Sunday or Monday. In the meantime, here are some photos showing the process and progress up to this point:

First we visited the fire truck and took loads of measurements and photos. Next, we built a scale model out of foam.

We began fabricating pieces out of gumpaste.

Then, started "gluing" it all together.

Coming together and up on "blocks" courtesy of the Girl Scouts.

Painted red...
Adding details like the grill...

the upholstery...

And the "wooden" truck bed.

Still lots and lots of fine detail-work to go.
To be continued...
