This race car birthday cake is a 12″ round white cake with homemade buttercream frosting. I made the race car out of gum paste and it was actually easier to make than I thought it would be.

If you want to make one, all I did was Google how to make a race car out of fondant gum paste and there was a  video tutorial on how to make it. Believe me,  I am no professional cake decorator. If I can do it, so can you.

For the the race track all I did was roll out a big circle of black fondant and cut a number two out if it because my grandson was turning two! You could just use whatever age your birthday girl or boy is turning as your race track shape!

Everything in this race car birthday cake is edible and homemade .
