Race Car Cakes

Ingredients

Directions

  1. For each car, cut one of the cake layers in half crosswise, making two half-circles. Using about 1/4 cup of the Creamy White Frosting, sandwich the bottoms of the two half-circles together. Place cake cut sides down.
  2. Using a serrated knife, cut a small L-shape notch in one end of each cake to make the front windshield and hood of a car. Tint about 1 1/2 cups of the frosting aqua blue (using sky blue and leaf green food colorings). Tint another 1 1/2 cups of the frosting lime green (using leaf green and golden yellow food colorings). Spread each car with a different color of frosting.
  3. Use the remaining white frosting to attach flat licorice candy, licorice twists, oval mints, gumdrops, and/or candy-coated pieces for windows, racing stripes, bumpers, headlights, and racing numbers. Insert black licorice pieces for antennas, adding a bit of frosting at each tip.
  4. If desired, make a racing track on a large flat serving platter or tray with strips of colored tape. Using large spatulas, carefully transfer race car cakes to platter. Press chocolate sandwich cookies into sides of race cars for wheels; use frosting to attach ring-shape candies for wheel covers.

From the Test Kitchen

Flower Car Cakes:

Prepare as directed, except tint frosting pink, purple, green, and/or yellow instead of aqua blue and lime green. Instead of decorating cakes with stripes, use assorted candy-coated fruit-flavor pieces to make flowers on cars.
