Make a Harley Davidson Cake
This Harley Davidson Cake was for my Father who rode Harley Davidson motorcycles most of his life!
Cake Boss and Ace of Cakes are a couple of mine and my fathers favorite shows to watch. I love how they work with lots of cake fondant. Cake fondant is very fun to work with when decorating cakes! I knew I would want to use cake fondant on my fathers Harley Davidson Cake!
First... I baked two white cakes and when they cooled off I used a circle pattern cut from cardboard or something similar to cut the top cake smaller. Then I sliced both cakes in half and used butter cream icing to cover both cakes. Placing them in the fridge to cool.
While I was baking the two cakes I prepared the cake fondant for my Harley Davidson Cake. I kneaded the white fondant to where it was pliable. I used a roller so that the fondant spread out to 1/4", I took the bottom cake out of the fridge and laid the cake fondant over the cake. I smoothed it out with a and tried to get all the creases out. I used a knife to cut away the excess cake fondant. I put that one back in the fridge and repeated the same steps for the top layer.

While they were in the fridge I started on the black and orange cake fondant balls. I took enough to make a pea size ball but my son was helping and no 2 were the same size. Once the balls were done, I took the cakes out and put cake dowels in the bottom layer and plopped the top layer on those.

How To Make a Harley Davidson Cake
I iced the balls with a little bit of icing so they would stick around the edges. I also bought cake markers and traced the Harley logo onto the fondant. That didn't work too well because the cake was sweating. During this whole time the cake was periodically going back into the fridge because it was too hot. I used black and orange icing for the outline on top.
The flames are made out of orange red and yellow fondant that I rolled together and make it look tie-dye. I rolled that to 1/4" -some were a little thicker than others-and used a knife to cut the flames out. Once I had enough I covered some of the "oops" on the cake. The bike was from the dollar store.
Everyone loved the cake but did mention that the fondant was "chewy". I personally didn't care for the fondant but everything else tasted great. I found a recipe to make your own marshmallow fondant, which I heard taste a lot better then the box fondant like Wilton which is what I used. That will be my next adventure.
