APC Cake (Armored Personnel Carrier)

So, this is my latest cake project, which I made for my father-in-law's birthday. It's an Armored Personnel Carrier from Vietnam, which her served in the Army during that time. This cake was alot more complicated than the dragon cake, because it had a lot more intricate details. It took me fourteen hours and I could have used several more hours to have finished working on it. Needless to say, Chris' dad knew what it was right a way and he loved it. The APC was made out of rice krispie treats covered with modeling chocolate and all of the detailing was done with gum paste. Gum paste is alot like fondant, except that it actually hardens and it does it quite quickly. I hated working with it and I think next time I'll stick with modeling chocolate. I did have lots of fun working on it and we'll see what my next project will be.
