PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE help me come up with some ideas for this cake! An 8 year old little boy wants and Amazing Race cake and I am drawing a COMPLETE blank as far as what I should do Hubby thinks I should do a globe- but I'm not confident enough in my ability to make a perfect circle out of cake!
well what about something to do with the amazing race mat that they finish on at the end of each leg, or the clue cards, or clue boxes etc stuff like that
sorry that's all i can think of
Is the amazing race a cartoon? did you google it?
Amazing race is my FAVORITE show! A globe would be sooooo cool! If not then yes... the clue card or something like that! Or what about a flat world map with little pit stop flags on all the countries????
LOVE the clue card idea! And, yes, we love this show too!
Okay - now we are talking my favorite show!! Everything in my house stops on Sunday night for AR!!
If you are doing a sheetcake then I would make it look like the mat they step on at the pit stop which is a map of the world. Then either around the sides of the cake I would put yellow fondant (or ice in buttercream) and then a strip of red fondant around the middle to represent the AR sign.
Now if you are doing a stacked cake - the possibilities are endless - but you could use 1/2 of the sports ball pan and top the cake with 1/2 of a globe since you aren't confident enough to do one entirety. Then you could put points of interest around the cake on a -------- (dashes) trail leading from one pit stop to another in different countries and possibly throw in some of 'Roadblocks', U-turns, etc and possibly a duffle bag, passport, airplane, taxi and the list goes on and on!
I just searched 'google image' 'amazing race cake' and there are 2 examples posted.
Have fun and enjoy it and be sure to post your pic when finished.
Sorry this is really long because of all the pics I attached.....
Love that show!!! I attached some pics that i found, just googled.... Love Phil BTW!! Anyways, If you could do something with the travelocity roaming gnome that would be soo cool! He is in like every season. Also the clue cards, road block, fast forward etc. There are many things to do with this idea.... Good Luck! I kind of wish I was doing this cake now...
