I don't know a thing about racing so I was a little at a loss when my roommate asked me to make a Nascar cake for her mother's birthday. I had grand ideas of making a shaped track with little cars and stands full of people [okay - colorful dots representing people]... then work got in the way. It seems to be doing that a lot lately. Regardless, I managed to make a suitable cake. If anything, it must have been delicious - chocolate cake slathered with chocolate icing and blanketed in dark chocolate Satin Ice Fondant. Yum.
I mimicked the colorful Nascar logo by piecing together strips of fondant.
The waving flags were colored in with black food color markers.
Although it's not as impressive as I had envisioned, I hope this cake qualifies for the big race... [lame, I know].
