Race Car Birthday Cake

This is the cake I made for a co-worker’s hubby's birthday back in December 2010! She wanted something that her kids would enjoy. I gave her an idea of a car themed cake. The main criterion was "no girly colours!" I think we were successful on meeting that criterion!

It is a four inch dark chocolate cake with our super yummy dark chocolate ganache filling. Underneath the fondant decorations is a layer of the oh-so-good milk chocolate gananch.

I absolutely love the checkered border around the bottom of the cake!! It definitely takes the race car theme to a whole new level! I also did a couple checkered flags.
 
And now for the decorations!!  Once again, all of the decorations are made out of gumpaste! The race cars were based off of a tutorial we found on Cake Journal. They ended up being super easy to make!

Happy decorating!
