Last year I marked my boyfriend’s birthday with his favorite sports team…this year, his favorite movie.
I looked at many images from the movie Back to the Future, and they were all very complicated. I didn’t want to do just a logo because I knew I could do better. The flux capacitor also came to mind, but I knew I could still do better then that. I looked at promo poster variations until I found a teaser poster for Back to the Future 2. I was really excited about this picture because I knew I could use dark chocolate for the background, which I knew our birthday party guest would prefer. I couldn’t get any of the liscence plate detail in because I don’t know any way to make colored chocolate stay /show up in a space that tiny. I used straight candy color for the red spots, but even that is difficult to control because it’s an oil.
I’d also like to mention I ran out of black food coloring, so the black you see took some extra creativity. I’ve already got a plan for next year, so you’ll have to check back to see what I came up with.
