New Commercial is Full of Lovely Stuff

Before you ask why there's a picture of a car on YumSugar, you better take a closer look.

For a new 60-second commercial spot, car company Skoda hired a team of bakers, model makers and home economists to create a cake version of their new Fabia. The commercial, which reportedly cost around a million dollars to make, features the team baking the car cake from scratch. They used 180 eggs, 100kg of flour, 100kg of caster sugar, 30kg of almonds, 65kg of dried fruit, 180kg of orange sugar paste, 12.5kg of jam, a huge vat of chocolate and a whole lot of other delicious fixings. The car took 4 days to complete, and is incredibly detailed, down to the golden syrup "motor oil" and giant gelatin lights.

To check out the entire commercial (the pictures are cool, but the video is way better),

If you're curious to find out more, here is a step by step breakdown.

I saw this yesterday on TV, too. I didn't have a clue what was going on for the first couple of seconds, but it's pretty cool. Reminds me of a Honda one from a while back.
