I have a customer who wants a race care cake for this weekend. Only thing is, he wants the back of the car "jacked up". At first, I thought what I would do is set the cake up on a triangular base - I wish I could draw a picture of it, so it would make sense! What I mean is one long side of the triangle would be on the cake board, a short side would be holding up the back end of the car, and then the other long end would be against the cake (gosh, I hope that makes sense).
My concern then is that the cake would be slanted towards the front of the cake board - do you think it would slide off the base? :S

how big is the cake going to be? i don't think the back end needs to be too much higher than the front, so it wouldn't cause the cake to slide forward. typically race cars that are jacked up in the back also have bigger tires, so maybe you could also make bigger tires for the rear.

won't slid off if you glue the cake to the cake board w/ icing.

and then attach the cake board firmly (hot melt glue) to the styrofoam wedge. (do this first)

The cake is not too big - about 6" x 12".
Thanks so much for the help! Time to find a hot glue gun. icon_smile.gif
