I made this Roary the Racing Car Cake in two baking tins and jam and creamed them and stacked them to the height needed so that I could start cutting the cake into the shape of Rory. Cutting freehand with no pattern you could see the shape Rory was going to be before it was covered.
Once the sponge was the shape I wanted it to be I buttercreamed over the whole cake, and carefully rolled out the icing (red) so it was large enough to cover the whole cake. Then once I had covered it the best I could I started to put all the little bits to make Rory look like Rory, his eyes, mouth, wheels, his hat and his flag etc.
I put George’s name and his age on it, when he saw it he was over the moon with it.
