This simple, easy and effortless car cake tutorial can be used to carve the car cake no matter which car brand or make you choose, and no matter how big or small the cake size you need.

Today’s’ Tip has been shared by the lovely Sarah Clark of The Cake Tin. If you don’t know Sarah you are missing out on some really gorgeous cakes. Not to mention how amazing she herself is.

Here is a little Bio Sarah sent me – I live in Rotorua, New Zealand and have run my own home based business for the last 3 years after discovering a passion for cakes. Prior to that, I was a chef for 17 years. I am a Mum of 2 kids who are 7 and 4 years old and I have a fabulous husband who is super supportive of my crazy caking obsession.
My motto is “It’s fun to do the impossible” which is a Walt Disney quote. It seems so apt when so much of what we do is about pushing ourselves to be better and do things which scare us.

Car Cake Tutorial – Carving a Cake Cake the easy way (Save/Pin)
When you make a car cake it is easy to lose the shape of the car as you carve. So here are a few tips and progress pictures that might help you. Here I am carving a Beetles but any car shape with the same template will work as well.
By having two identical sides of the car in paper form as a template makes things much easier.
- Stack up your cakes into roughly the correct shape. Use toothpicks to place your pictures onto the sides of the cake taking care to ensure they are aligned correctly.
- Using a serrated knife start carving away the cake. Do small amounts at a time as this can reduce the risk of carving too much away.
- Once you have the body shape, place the roof on and see if the shape you need is right.
- Place toothpicks through the paper on the cake, where the chassis is curved so that you get the right places to carve away.
- Remove the paper and gradually sculpt the car so that it is the correct shape.
- Once it is the right shape Ganache and then you are all ready to ice and decorate.
And voila your Car Cake is perfectly carved.
Another cake that great for carving is this butter-based cake. When you need a half chocolate half vanilla sheet cake
