I had the pleasure of making this cake for a friend's nephew's Hot Wheels theme birthday last weekend. As soon as she mentioned the theme to me, I knew I wanted to make a race track. I decided not to cover the entire cake in fondant and I'm so glad that the paper towel method worked very well with my frosting this time around.
The cake was hand carved from an 8 inch square yellow cake using a template my brother created for me. I filled, crumb coated, frosted, and decorated with vanilla buttercream frosting. The only fondant I used were the red and black pieces. The cars are from a Hot Wheels candle set I picked up from Party City.
Filled, stacked, carved.
