This Hot Wheels Cake is a birthday cake I made for my son’s 4th Birthday. I used a double layered 10 inch round on the bottom and a double layered 6 inch round on the top. I put the cake on a 12 inch cake board so that there was enough room to add the cars at the end.
The cake is chocolate with yellow homemade buttercream filling. I used homemade white buttercream for the frosting and then cut out black fondant squares to make the checker pattern. The fondant squares were added with gumpaste glue. I got the Hot Wheels logo off the internet and cut it out with orange fondant and added my son’s name with black fondant letters. I then used yellow buttercream to add the trim around the 2 layers and the top. This was done with tip 21.
I then made the flags with a checkered pattern that I found on the internet and added the hot wheels around the bottom. I was really excited with the outcome of this cake. It was my own original creation and the look on my sons face when he saw it was priceless.
