It was only a matter of time before our first car cake request came in, and we were thrilled to make one for Trevor’s 2nd birthday! The birthday boy’s only request was that it be a blue car with yellow highlights, so we based the cake on a Ford Mustang and embellished it with a few things to make it truly Trevor’s: a yellow 2 for his 2nd birthday on the door, the Boston Red Sox rear window decal, and of course, the license plate!
The cake was a chocolate chocolate chip cake, filled & frosted with vanilla moussaline buttercream. The car was decorated with a combination of fondant, gumpaste & modeling chocolate. To cover the board, we used a little oreo “dirt”.
