I hope that this video will help those who want to try something different but don’t know where/how to start.
I made this speedboat cake for a friend and truth be told I didn’t know how it would turn out at all. I checked about a hundred of speed boat pictures on the Internet and still wasn’t sure what way to do it. I just knew I wanted something that was not too complicated to make and this is the result.
I am not a professional baker but making fondant cakes is my passion and challenge. I always learn along the way. When you are about to make fondant cakes for the first time planning plays an important role in the whole process. You have to plan ahead what you will start with and how you will do it. That is why time management is also important. Never leave making any fondant cake project to the last minute. It will save you a lot of nerves! Believe me!
Now when it comes to this fondant speed boat cake I kind of did not realized it would turn out so big. I know I had my template but still. Somehow I always go over! Ooops!
Speedboats are not my thing I tell you this! The amount of research that went into this project was unbelievable! I actually learned what some boat parts are called. I studied the shapes and everything!
I know this cake was not perfect but I was pretty happy with it! It looked like a decent speedboat cake and that’s what counts, right? Haha!

Try using a glass or a jar.
