I guess one out of three ain't bad.

My friend Kristy wanted a cake for her son's birthday. He was interested in 4-wheelers, dirt bikes and helicopters. Since she gave me short notice (and admittedly my sculpting skills are pretty limited) I had to purchase toys instead of making everything out of gum paste. There is no store in southwest Iowa that sells 4 wheeler, dirt bike or helicopter toys small enough to fit on a cake. What do boys play with these days? I made some fondant 2D helicopters and the settled for some "crotch rocket" motorcycles. Now if this cake was depicting real life I am pretty sure these riders would have crashed and burned by now.
