www.sportscakes.com (use to be racecakes.com) carries the kits to make the cars and I think they have helmets now too. I made the #3 car for a 3rd birthday. It was one of the first cakes I ever made. At the party, my 7yo niece asked where the cake was. It was right in front of her! Bless her little heart, she thought it was a toy car. I could've just kissed her for that!
Birthdays are just nature's way of telling us to eat more cake.
I just made a nascar themed cake for my dad's 50 birthday (we got him a gift certificate to drive a nascar). Its posted in the Themed Cakes>Cars and Trucks section. Its an oval track with a green grass infield. I made flags and decorated some cars. I also put 2 matchbox nascar cars on the cake.
My SIL gave me the racecar pan to use for my brother's 60th birthday in July. He has now finally purchased a 65 Mustang after searching forever...is it going to be possible for me to make the racecar look like a Mustang, or should I just start from scratch, panwise, that is? Planning ahead, Janice
