I’ve not posted on CakesDecor for a while and have a few cakes I’d like to show you starting with this one for Henry’s 3rd Birthday. It is the 3rd cake I’ve made for Henry and each year his mum has asked for a bigger, better cake than the year before.
I’m very pleased with how the cake turned out. There are a couple of things I’d change if I did it again but overall I’m happy with my work.
The blue ‘sky’ base cake is separate to the car cake for ease of lifting the top cake off and cutting the base cake. Both cakes are Madagascan vanilla bean sponges filled with raspberry jam and vanilla buttercream. The base cake is crumb coated in buttercream and the car is ganached before being covered in fondant.
The wings are made from gum paste and sprayed with liquid colour and then pushed between the two layers of cake. I added cocktail sticks to give extra support
