This is my favourite car cake I have made so far. It was for my own brother and modelled on his own car and took me approx 15 hours to complete.
The cake itself was a chocolate orange sponge cake and covered in black fondant. Everything is edible and the lights were white fondant inserted into the carved cavities and then hand-painted. The shine was achieved using confectioners varnish which works so well on black fondant. The windscreen was made from flower paste and left to dry hard before putting in place.
I really enjoyed making this one and have found it hard to beat with any of my subsequent car cakes.
