BMW vacuum cleaner

Also this past Saturday I delivered another cake we made. As requested by a previous customer Mary we made her husband's 40th birthday cake.  The request; a vacuum cleaner. Apparently her husband John is a clean fanatic and loves to vacuum......send him over to my place, lol. 

Everything is edible except for the handle which is a long wooden dowel covered in fondant and glued to the board.  Though a challenge this cake was fun to make.  The vacuum is made up of an 8" cake for the base followed by a 6" cake and 4" rounds making up the canister part. 

John is also a chocolate lover so the cakes are our delicious and popular chocolate Guinness filled with vanilla mousse.  Though the vacuum is sort of fashioned from a Dirt Devil, this one has a BMW logo as the BMW is John's favourite car.

John, being a Toronto Maple Leafs fan, we added some blue maple leafs in hopes of a clean sweep this season. The board is covered in white fondant textured to resemble carpet and with a few cookie crumbs and maple leafs waiting to be cleaned up.


Happy 40th John!
We wish you many more happy years!
