1. Making the stand

This cake requires a very straightforward stand which Paul explains in this lesson. Feel free to adapt to your own style and designs as with many of his stands Paul just uses what he has available to do the job.

2. Carving the cake

What a great design to start and practice your carving skills. As there’s no brand or model of car to match you have poetic license, but follow Paul’s steps to go through each stage of the design process.

3. Covering the cake

Paul’s using coloured sugarpaste, but you can cover in white and airbrush if you prefer. It’s important to get the sugarpaste neatly shaped to the design you’ve carved.

4. Cutting out the wheel arches

The wheels are going to be an important feature of the car so make sure you take your time to get the arches correct.

5. Adding the bumper, lights and windscreen

Time to start adding the key cartoon car features. It’s just a case of using simple techniques to create the shapes, making sure they have the cartoon characteristics that you have in mind for the finished design.

6. Adding the eyes and eyelashes

Paul brings the unicorn car to life in this lesson by adding the pupils to the eyes along with some lovely lashes.

7. Cutting out the wheels

Nice and easy this one, simply a case of rolling out modelling chocolate and cutting out the wheel sizes. Allow them a little time to set.

8. Adding the wheels

First Paul covers the board then creates some pretty colourful tyres. Adding the tyres and the mirrors really starts to bring this cute little design to life.

Now Playing

9. Adding the rainbow stripes

Another very simple technique, but adding all these bright colours for the rainbow really brings this design to life. But Paul’s not finished with the colours yet, as he adds some extra decorations to the board.

10. Finishing touches

To finish off Paul adds the ribbon then the all important horn before bringing it to life with a bit of shine.
