Gary's racing car

This was my first ever carved cake. It was made from a two layer vanilla traybake sandwiched together with jam & buttercream.

It was made for the brother of a friend of mine, who's sister in law is a truly amazing (but incredibly busy) cake maker who didn't have time to make this one. To say I was nervous was a true understatement; I've seen Fiona's cakes!!!

It was decorated on the afternoon I came out of hospital after having Glaucoma tests on my eyes. My eyesight was still pretty fuzzy when I piped it as you can see :-(


I also made a dozen gluten free cupcakes for my friend's husband & daughter who are both Coeliacs so they could have a cake too.
