With Claire St Quinton

Difficulty Easy

Broken Video?

Learn how Claire creates this fun iconic VW Camper Van cake displayed on a sandy beach, perfect for that person who loves vintage cars and the outdoors catching some waves. In this lesson watch how to carve and ganache a cake ready to be covered with sugarpaste, how to achieve nice smooth lines and curves, how to add key features: windows, doors, bumpers and the iconic VW badge and how to make retro styled surfboards from modelling paste. You will also be shown how to finally bring it all together and display the cake and decorations into a trendy beach scene created from golden sugar.
