The customer asked her husband what he would like for his birthday. “An E-Type Jaguar” was the answer, and so she came to me – and that was my brief!
The car, driver, trees and grass are all contoured and raised from the surface of the cake giving a semi 3D effect. She asked for the number plate to show his initials and age. The driver is loosely modelled on the description given of the recipient.
The cake is a 7″ square vanilla sponge.

And after attending an event which incorpoted a classic car show, I gained another order from one of the car owners, but with a slightly different car and driver – working from photos supplied by the customer.
