Hello, Would anyone give me your ideas on what to put under a race car cake that makes it looks like it is being supported by the tires....either cake or covered styrofoam???? I would greatly appreciate any how to's or suggestions ... Thank you so much
I followed Sharon's instructions for the support board, but cut mine out of black foam core instead. Then under this support board I cut another black piece of foam core, a narrower strip, and glued it under the other board. Gave the illusion of it being raised up.
car is in my photos
i've used syrofoam covered in fondant for my tractor and truck cakes (in my photos) HTH!
You could do a wooden cake board and put 1-inch square wood strips across under the bottom. Use two of them and place them where the tire axles would be. This way your cake is elevated and when you put your tires on it covers the wood strips. You could even paint the strips black just to be sure you didn't see them.
