collection of 7 cars cakes

Here are 7 different variations of car cakes, some using sheet cakes, others using the Wilton car pan.

Wilton Car Cake

wilton car cakeI used a Betty Crocker milk chocolate cake mix. The design was from a Wilton cake pan. I made the icing out of Wilton's buttercream icing and food coloring. This is the first "professional" cake and I had a blast make it. My son, who it was made for, got a huge kick out of it. =)

Corvette Cake

yellow corvette cakeI used an inch and a half thick block of wood underneath the cake board to lift the car off off the table. I then cut 2 5 by 9 cakes (frosted in the middle with cream cheese frosting) to make the major portion of the body. the top is all one piece of cake shaved down to make the windows. this was the hard part!
getting the proportions right was easiest by finding a picture on the web of a corvette and making the body x number of wheel diameters long. (if that makes sense)
the wheels are muffins minus the tops.
brake lights are red m&ms. The license plate is a Hershey bar square!
no fondant was used in the making of this cake.
