You will probably have to carve it from frozen cake or "adjust" a regular car pan. Depending on your skill level...

I have both types in my gallery and can give you some pointers. http://www.cakecentral.com/cake-decorating-photos-by-jenn123.html

Try searching "cars" in the gallery...there are some really creative cakes to give you ideas. Also search "carve" in the forums for some terrific tips. The search button is small text right under the titles.

I'm not really an expert, but I made one for my DB birthday in July using the regular Wilton racecar pan and adapted it to look as much like his Mustang as I could. It is in my gallery, maybe it would help a little! Janice

Or, you might could try a frozen buttercream transfer. Here is the link to the instructions. Good luck! icon_smile.gif

Here is a picture of an edible image car cake. Maybe you can take pictures of both cars and shape the cake to the pictures.

I dont' know what to sya that other's havent' said already,but IF you read this and finish it, please post so we can see it.

I'm (still) in love with my beloved '68 convertible and '65 hardtop Mustangs, that I had to get rid of for various reasons.
