Hi- I am going to make a car cake for my church's vacation bible school. I was wondering what is the best way to get the floater look. Is it made out of cake or is it non ediable surface holding it up? I plan to do the donuts for the wheels.
Oh, I am going to make a sheet cake (2) stack and carve them to get the car... Unless anyone has any other ideas.
You can leave it as cake and ice it to blend in maybe in grey or white. You can also put the body of the car on a cake board (double it if you need to) and then use a small box (I've used a jewelry box) or a block of styrofoam under it to elevate it. I used strong double sided tape to get the box to stick to the board above and below it.
Here are some good instructions
