Race Car Cake

race car cakeThis cake was made for one of my sons birthday who races mini-stocks. He enjoyed it and so did the rest of the family.I made a devils food chocolate cake mix and baked it in a car shaped pan. Decorating the cake was FUN! I made traditional white frosting to frost the cake and edge the base. I mixed red coloring to some of the frosting and filled in the car shape using a star tip until all the spaces were covered. Then I mixed black coloring into some of the frosting and used a star tip to fill in the tire shapes and flag areas. I then changed tips so I could pipe around the windows and grill etc..Even though he didn't come in first at the track, the cake won at home!

Speed Racer Birthday Cake

Speed Racer Birthday CakeThe speed racer car was the first car I had ever tried to make. I used a block or rice krispy treats that I had pressed into a loaf pan, and carved the shape from that.The car was covered with red and white fondant. The tires were black fondant. You can't really see from the picture, but I flopped on the silver paint for the wheels, and ended up just using gray fondant.
I placed the car on a 1/4 sheet cake. The top was covered with red and yellow tiles cut from fondant. The edge was finished with a simple shell border.
