3D cartoon police car tutorial by Liz Huber @ Cakery Creation in Palm Coast/St. Augustine

I was given a bunch of existing cake pictures and asked to take a little something from each cake and merge them all into one cake topper and this was the cute outcome.

3D cartoon police car tutorial
Mold the size of a basic car shape with RKT.
Take a circle cutter lightly press into the RT about 1/2". Then take a knife and cut it out.

Cover in modeling chocolate
Cover in fondant or gumpaste. Smooth.

Take the same circle cutter used earlier and cut out the fondant in the wheel wells. After removing use a ball tool smooth the edges.

Roll out black or navy fondant and place on the front and back of the the car.

Roll out black gumpaste about 1/2" to 3/4" thick. Using the same sized circle cutter from earlier cut out 4 tires. Take a smaller circle cutter and cut into the center of the tire(just a little, not all the way through. Take a ball tool and lightly press into this smaller circle.

Cut out a small circle for the rim of the tire.I used a small ball tool a needle to add a little detail to the rim.

Now add a little edible glue to the backside of your tires and place them in the cutouts of the car. They should fit nice and snug.

Now measure the size windshield you need. Cut out a black piece of fondant and then a slightly small piece of white or grey fondant and place them on the front of the car.  Side note: Do not add the smile at this time. I should have waited until I added my headlights.

Cut out 2 small circle for the cars eyes and then 2 smaller white ones.

Now measure the top of the car to see how wide you need to make the red and blue light. Each piece was done separately them gumpaste glued together.
I cut out a #1 and 2 small stars and added them to the back of the car. Cut out 2 long this strips for the bumpers.
Here is when you will add the headlights and then roll out a long piece of white gumpaste/fondant for the smile and for the door outline. I also rolled a small black fondant ball and covered one side of it with white for the spotlight. Roll out a black long tube for the window outline and door handles.
Here is the template I made of the side windows

Here is the template I made for the back window
Cut out 2 rectangular red pieces of the lights in the back. Now use an impression tool to add detail to the lights. The car is ready to be painted. I added silver shimmer to the back lights, rims, bumpers and side/back windows. Gold shimmer to the headlights and spot light. You can add the word police to the sides of the car. I added a specific departments logo due to the clients request.

There you go! Enjoy!
