Happy 50th Anniversary Ford Mustang.
Let’s hear it for the boys! In celebration of Ford Mustang’s 50th year, 33 talented men from 14 different countries got together to honor this gorgeous machine in sugar…we call them the REV HEADS.
This was my contribution piece and the idea and concept behind it. My inspiration is derived from the iconic Ford Mustang brand / vehicle becoming a legend in our songs, movies and advertising, a very large part of pop and historical culture. I developed my initial idea further of the Ford mustang sports convertible outrunning time and death itself, depicted is The Grim Reaper as a tall spectre overshadowing the display. I sketched my design and gathered my inspiration/ ideas running board, cut and covered boards and measured and assembled my internal support structure with led lights attached, added cake to the frames and sculpted and built up profile with ganache and chocolate modelling paste,
A black shiny Ford Mustang sports convertible with flames, full of skeletons skulls and bones. Made in sculpted cake , sugar paste and chocolate modelling paste. My piece is called ‘Outliving The Legend’ I have used the new range of TruColor natural food color pigments which are absolutely wonderful to work with, I cannot recommend them enough for customised work where colors and finishes need to be tweaked and perfect, in their range I used their shine and metallic and airbrush colors for my project. There is approximately 15 hours work in this project with probably 2 – 3 hrs set aside to plan and prepare.
A special Thanks to Sharon Spradley of Curieaussiety Custom Cakes for making this project happen.
