Exactly what goes into making a car cake?

A lot of ratios! Numbers and maths are not my thing, that’s why I like making colourful, pretty cakes 🙂

Pictures of all angles of the car – to make sure that everything is in proportion. I can’t express myself very well mathematically, so as you can see there are also random numbers scribbled all over the place.

The numbers side of my brain finally got its act together and together with its creative partner (who spent a good 6 hours hand painting the designs on the car) created a car that was ready to race!

    You did an amazing job on the car cake. I can’t imagine how difficult that would be and it looks perfect.

    Thanks Jennifer! It took forever to measure every single thing and then try and work out the ratio of it!

    Chocswirl, good luck with your cake, let me know how it goes 🙂
