Hot Wheels Cake

My youngest turned 4 this month, and he chose a Hot Wheels birthday theme. Since the party was at a local tumbling place, there wasn’t much for me to do for this party, so I decided to go all out with the cake. Here’s what I came up with…


I’m pretty excited about the outcome. The bottom tier is a dummy Styrofoam round, that I covered with fondant. For the flames, I made two templates, then cut them out of fondant. I painted a red outline on all the yellow flames using vodka and red gel food color. The cake board is trimmed with checkered duct tape. Which also is very handy for decorating water bottles!! Check them out!

And the duct tape came in handy for my favors too. These are just plastic cups that I filled with candy, then placed a cupcake on top. Each cupcake is topped with a hot wheel. I tied a fork to each one so the kids could eat them right out of the cup…hopefully less mess!

The birthday boy loved his cake, and the party was a success (and SOOOO easy since it wasn’t at my house!!)
