We enjoy making an occasional groom's cake; capturing all the details is a lot of hard work, but fun! We had the chance to make a cake replica of an Audi RS8, for Josh and Christine's wedding in Wilton, CT. After all our hard work we had a sense of accomplishment when we saw the final product, and having the cake published in Town & Country was a great bonus. Thanks to Melani Lust, who submitted this gorgeous wedding.
Our approach was to make the cake as realistic as possible, as opposed to a cute, cartoonish depiction. We were fortunate to have a scale model of the Audi, provided by the bride, which helped us greatly in getting the details right.
One key was cutting the cake to the right contours; downloading the blueprints and scaling them down was a huge help.

Our staff is well-versed in making flowers, leaves, lace, and other feminine elements; making car tires, radiator grills, and pieces of trim is quite a change of pace. We all had fun improvising, using the tools we use every week to make flowers, to texture the tire treads and trim, and shape and configure all the pieces.
We knew we had done our job well when Melani Lust sent us this photo (later published in Town & Country): Josh couldn't bear to see the cake being cut!
