Harley Cake

This cake was made for some friends of ours from church!



The cake is vanilla with vanilla buttercream - the vanilla buttercream is heavily dyed black. The flames are made from marshmallow fondant and after much debate, were formed using a cookie cutter (made my Rodney). We made them all in yellow. I then painted the orange around the sides using orange food coloring mixed with vanilla extract.

The logo shape is made from fondant but the words/letters were piped on (by yours truly) with none other than...vanilla buttercream! I free-handed the words and though they aren't totally centered, I'm still pretty pleased with the results.

Had fun with this cake!

did you attach the flames on the harley davidson cake and then paint the sides orange? bc the fandant will need to dry to the shape of the cake, right???
