I haven't done too many carved cakes, but when our friend asked for a classic VW Beetle cake for her husband, I was so excited. Carving cakes is time consuming and takes a LOT of cake. This car cake was difficult because there are so many angles and lines. After looking on the internet for other Beetle cakes, I found out that professionals make these TO SCALE. What?
Mine's not to scale, but it was fun to make and a great experience. The cake was red velvet with cream cheese filling.
