I did lots of research on how to make a car birthday cake for my son's birthday but most of them involved complicated cutting, building and shaping of cakes and then trying to overlay fondant icing. In my heart of hearts I knew that attempting something like that would end in me being up to the early hours the night before his party with a disaster on my hand.

Instead I came across this easy design which I've adapted a little to keep it simple. My son was over the moon with his cake and my husband created a second similar version for our other son who's birthday also falls just a few days apart.

They might have a joint party but they need their own cake to blow out the candles on!

Time: 25 minutes to cut and decorate (extra time to bake the cake)
Age: Parent Craft
Level: Easy

Materials
2 x 20cm round sponge cakes (make your own or buy for extra ease)
Butter or cream cheese icing
Food colouring
Selection of sweets, biscuits and chocolates for decorating

Method
Place the two cakes on top of each other and then use a serrated knife to cut them in half.
This will leave you with 4 halves. Stack these on top of each other. I decided 4 was too many and discarded one.

Now cut a slightly slanted L shape from one side. The basic car is now ready.

Stick each layer together with butter or cream cheese icing and then turn the cake so that the flat cut end becomes the bottom of the cake.

Colour the rest of your icing with food colouring.
Slather the icing all over the car.

Next decorate the car with sweets, biscuits and chocolate to create the features. This is what will really transform the cake.
I used biscuits for the wheels, thin square chocolate mints for the windows and a selection of sweets for extra detail.
