Today i wanted to share the Racing Car Tutorial with you. The car cake topper is about 8” long and I used Rice Krispies treat bars. Yes, I cheated lol. For small items like that i love to use the bars as they are already made and less messy. You just squash into a shape and in this case i didn’t even squash them. I attached the pieces I cut with fondant and let dry so it doesn’t fall apart. That way they are less bumpy too but still covered twice. Right let’s get to the point and post the tutorial pohotos. Hope this helps somebody :) and instead of a seat you can always add a little head as driver. Also wanted to point out that RKT shape of the car can be used for carved 3D car cake :)
The cake tin was 13”x9” rectangle shape. Once baked and stacked I cut the corners to form oval shape of fish body. It is two layers of cakes sandwiched together with jam and butter cream and crumb coated with butter cream. Each cake was baked by using 5 egg Victoria sponge mixture. I took few pictures along the way which you an find below. Wishing Joe a very wonderful birthday.
I would recommend dusting with darker green to achieve the shadows instead of painting (which gives the smeared look) I also recommend mixing white dust with alcohol to do the white painting of the eyes and weapon parts to avoid smudges when handling. Hope you like them :)
