Aliens APC cake
A few more photos than usual for this one, as it was such a big project!
It was our privilege to make a 50th birthday cake for Harry Harris, pre-eminent collector of props and costumes from the film Aliens. The subject we chose was the armoured personnel carrier (or 'APC') from that film.
The cake was approximately 19" x 7".
Details were individually hand-made from sugar paste and added one by one.
To save time, a wheel was made from plastic and moulded, then four wheels were cast in black Candy Melts.
The gun turret on top was free to swivel.
The base was a specially-designed view of the hangar floor from the film, printed and mounted to a board.
Finally here is a view of the original vehicle as it appears in Aliens.
