Cars Cake

I have never ever had a busier baking week, not even at Christmas time. After making 3 big cakes this week I have to admit I'm more than a little relieved its all done. I'll work backwards and share the last cake I made first, a birthday cake for my boss's son Jake.
Happy Fourth birthday Jake!
I've have not seen Cars so had a bit of trouble knowing exactly what to do with this cake, I did a little research and found lots of inspirational pictures.
I love how the little cartoony car characters turned out. Especially the little truck 'Mater' I think he's my favorite, he's so cute.
I have been a bad blogger lately, this is my first post in over a week and haven't had a chance to catch up on eveyone else's posting, but I'm working on it. I promise i'll have some more cake pictures and some new recipes to share soon.


  1. This came out perfect. How adorable for a little boy's birthday.

  2. Wow! What a fantastic cake, must of taken you ages to complete. I am totally rubbish at modelling figures for cake toppers so kudos to you!

  3. This cake looks so perfect. I am awful at covering cakes with the fondant, mine never looks this smooth on the bigger cakes. Fabulous job.

  4. Thank you so much, Kara. This honestly is the best cake I have ever seen OR tasted. We were so blown away - the precision of your work is phenomenal. The attention to detail and creativity you put into this had everyone astounded. I think it was like magic for the kids - they were mesmerized! I did have a great deal of trouble cutting it up though - it just felt wrong to ruin it, but it was so delicious it was worth it! I cannot thank you enough. THANK YOU!

  5. PS Just for the record - Mater the tow truck was Jake's favourite too! Perfect.
