This one was done for a little boy, and i quote in his mother's words, " an urban planner who loves F1". So, instead of a "normal" race track cake, i carved the cake to make the fast car look like its "arriving" at the finish line on top of a raised platform. Thanks Wendy for the referral!
Aidan's mom also wanted 6 cupcakes topped with race cars on the side as well. And as per birthday boy's request, i made the cupcake race car toppers in orange with a white line running down, and his large race car topper in green (his fav color).
The most tedious part of this cake was shaping the "track" and ganaching it. but i think we got the hang of it, and i'm ready for a 2 tiered one! : )
Cake was red velvet with oreos filling.
