This is my first car cake. I made a large cake, layered it with jam and buttercream, then carved out the shape, covered it with fondant, then added all the other bits. I painted the writing on using vodka and food colouring (still a lot to learn using this technique!).
Editor's Note: Another great cake, Lesley. Thanks for including the different views. It will help our readers who are ambitious enough to try to make one.
