I made this Homemade Cars Race Track Cake last year for my son's 3rd birthday party! It was a huge hit and he was so happy! I made 2 9 inch round yellow cakes and 2 9 inch round chocolate cakes (from scratch). After all four cakes were baked and cooled, I leveled them with a serrated knife to even out each side and then I iced in between the layers with buttercream. I then placed the yellow and chocolate side by side and cut about an inch from the middle to mold them into a race track shape.
Next, I used white buttercream icing to ice the whole entire cake. For the race track I dyed some icing black and put a small bowl in the center of each side of the cake and iced around the bowl. Then I used white good and plenty candy for the white tracks on the road. I then coated marshmallows with green sprinkles and stuck them into the cake with toothpicks as well as added some checkered flags. For the green icing I used a Wilton grass tip and pastry bag. The cars I got at Target in the party favors section and I used cars cake candy also.
My son is turning 4 soon and he wants another Cars birthday cake. I need to find something to top last years!
This cake was made for twin boys turning three years old who absolutely love the Disney Cars movie. I sculpted the cake from two 10-inch round cakes torted into three layers each. I used a piece of paper (a big one) and traced out two 10-inch rounds on the paper and then drew a big "three" to use as a guide for cutting the cake.
I secured the two cakes together with buttercream frosting, and colored several colors of frosting to ice the cake with. I did the road with gray, the sides of the cake with green and white stars, and yellow dotted lines down the center of the cake. I also added rock candies (the chocolate kind not the hard sugar ones) and start and finish signs as well as a few cars and Mater towing a car off the road.
This homemade Cars race car cake was a fun cake to do and it got me several jobs of cakes to make for people even though I just do it for fun (for now!)
I created this Cars Disney Birthday Cake for my nephew. This was the first one I created, the year before it was Elmo and that was the first cake I did for kids and I really got into it. After that even went to school to be a cake decorator and just recently graduated. This cake I did while I was in school. He was into Cars so much. So I just had to make it for him.
I used the Cars cake pan and a 12in cake pan. Frosting, red, black, white, yellow and orange food coloring. I used the star tip and added strawberry filling. It took me a while to detail it but his eyes lit up so much when he saw it it didn't matter.
This year he's getting a Sponge Bob cake but shhhh don't tell him lol. This isn't one of my best cakes but it really meant a lot to me because it made him happy.
