How to Make a Race Car Cake
Race car cakes make an impressive birthday or graduation choice, perfect for boys or men of any age who appreciate cars. Their visual impact will amaze all your guests, whether or not they follow the racing closely themselves. First, create a basic frosted layer cake; then, using cookie cutters and sharp knives, cut the shape of a race car from it with cookie cutters; finally, add car cake toppers as decorations before serving your masterpiece to guests!
If the shape of a race car proves challenging to carve, using a template may help. This technique is beneficial if the body is curved. Once complete, place the finished race car in the fridge for at least an hour to preserve its form and avoid crumbling when carving it.
Once your cake has been chilled, ice it with a thin crumb coat of frosting to seal in any crumbs and allow it to set before using any remaining white frosting to frost the entire cake, before chilling again until its texture has established firm.
First, tint 1 cup of frosting with blue and green food colorings to resemble a race track. Spread this green frosting over your cake and use a large star tip to pipe “grassy areas.” Finally, add flat licorice candy, licorice twists, or oval mints as road markings while placing Hot Wheels cars onto the track.
Alternative Method of Cake Creation: For an easier coupe car cake creation, start with making rectangular or round layer cakes, stack them together, trim the edges to form a coupe shape, cover the sides with a thick layer of frosting, and use a ruler and pizza cutter to cut four rectangles out for tires.
Car Cakes for Kids
Kids who love cars will appreciate a cake shaped like their favorite vehicle – especially ones decorated with gum-paste models of racecars, checkered textures, tires, and racing flag elements woven throughout. However, blue, green, or orange may also work depending on your party theme and the age of the guests attending the party.
No matter what their favorite toys are, whether it be hot-wheels or Lightning McQueen – now you can order an adorable two-tier cake online and have it sent directly to their house to commemorate their special occasion. This delicious treat will surely put a smile on their big day!
This stunning cake can serve up to 18-20 guests and be made with chocolate, vanilla, or strawberry fondant. It is shaped like a classic coupe car and features detailed car decorations. Additionally, car-shaped cookies make an adorable extra fun touch and may also be added for added fun!
Make an eye-catching race car cake for your child by sandwiching the bottoms of two cake layers together using 1/4 cup of Creamy White Frosting and cutting an L-shape into each end for the front windshield and hood of a car. Tint 1 1/2 cups of the frosting aqua blue using sky blue and leaf green food colorings; tint another 1 1/2 cups lime green using leaf green and golden yellow colors before spreading each colored frosting layer by layer before frosting top and edges.

Spread onto cool cakes before garnishing as desired with candy-coated fruit-flavored pieces.
