I think it may actually be simpler to cut up your square and make a car-shaped cake! icon_smile.gif You just need a tall rectangle for the main body of the car, and a smaller, thinner square on top for the windows and roof.

But anyway, for the raceway type design, can you cut the cake so that the lower part of the "stands" is cake? Then you just need the angled bit on top. I'd probably make that out of candy melts -- pour out white melts on a flat surface and cut to size/shape before it's completely hardened. Then paint multicolored spots on the top piece for the "spectators". Sides and back could be painted or covered with BC. Or if you don't insist on using something edible, you could make the stand, or at least the sides and back of it, out of cardboard.

You could use a rice paper print for the background.

By the way, we have a lot of creative men on this site too. icon_smile.gif

If you have no time, then just draw/colour a background and stand it up
behind the cake. They've done stand up backgrounds on the TV cake
shows so it's a gooooooooooo!!! Gentlemen, start your engines!!!! icon_smile.gif
