I've been asked to make a go-kart cake like the one I made at the start of the year, the only difference being the size - the one I made before (which should be in my pictures) was made from a 7 inch cake and this time they need enough to feed around 30 people so it'll need to be much bigger. My worry is as the cake isn't very tall it's going to have to be massive to get enough servings. I've been wondering whether to do some of the cake as a track and then have the go-kart on the top but wasn't sure if anybody had made a go-kart cake big enough to feed 30 people?

Thank you!

Another alternative is to have a spare cutting cake decorated in the same colours hidden away.

Why not put it on a single layer sheet cake? Or possibly do cordinating cupcakes to make up the servings. Scaling the entire go kart might be tough without making a massive cakeicon_smile.gif

Thanks for your replies, I have spoken with the lady who ordered it and she's happy for me to do a go-kart on top of a cake as I think it'd end up huge if I tried to make it all out of cake and I think she'd prefer it to be one cake instead of having a cutting cake or something similar. Thanks again x
