I have so many new cakes to share with you, which I will be putting up over the next few days. Anyway back to this cake, this was a cake that I created for a man’s 50th birthday party in the shape of his very first car which was an orange Austin Allegro. This cake was a bit daunting at first because I knew every part of the car needed to be an exact replica, but as soon as I had carved the shape it was so much fun…

The cake was carved from 3 10inch x 6inch chocolate cakes. The 3rd cake was cut in half and placed on top of each other to create the height for the roof. In order to lift the cake off the board and create a gap between the bottom of the car and the board I used the same technique I used when making the Mater Cars cake. I cut a piece of drum board which was 2cm smaller than the underside of the car. I then stuck this to the main board and covered the whole lot in icing to look like the road. When I placed the cake ontop it gave me just enough space around the side to put on the wheels and give it the right height. The only parts of the car which were not edible were the wing mirrors and the exhaust, the rest of the detail was made out of incing/ fondant.

I have put some more pictures of this cake from different angles in my cake gallery, so check them out…
