HELP!!! I need to make a NASCAR cake for a friend of mine that races in the Nascar Nationwide Series. He knows cars too well to try and make it simple. Does anyone have any ideas on how to make one? He wants an exact replica of his car, and I'm not sure where to start! Im thinking a 3 layer 12" x 24" for the bottom and then carve it to look like one. Does anyone have any different ideas? Its a last minute thing and he needs it by friday! Thanks...

My family used to race the local tracks and when I met my dh we were both officials so I have done a few race car cakes. I'm not an expert and there maybe an easier way to do it but I take a 1:24th scale car that closely resembles the car I'm going to make and double all the measurements when carving. hth, if you have more questions just pm me and I'll help any way I can.

Thats a great idea! Thank you, I'm going to try that! Cakes are in the oven! Slinger is great, I love it here! Where are you from?

Oh, one thing make sure you use some sort of platform under the chassis so that it is not sitting on the "floor". I take cake boards and cut them to a rectangle shape about a 1/4 inch smaller than the chassis and stack about four or so together, wrap them in cling wrap and hot glue it to the final display board. Hope that makes sense.
