Ferrari F1 Cake

A friend of mine celebrated his birthday over the weekend and another two of my friends hosted a party for him. I was asked to bring a cake, which is an easy enough task but I decided to challenge myself a bake a cake. My head then went to thinking about all the types of things this friend likes and the answer that kept popping up was F1 racing. I did a bit of research and got an understanding for F1 birthday cakes and how they're made - with fondant, sponge, rice krispies and buttercream. Four different recipes but the final product definitely made it worth it. Here's the process I went through, with the help of my darling husband. More photos to come when my phone decides to email them to me!!!

We even managed a figurine from Halo

On an unrelated note but related food note, I am really excited by a new cafe in my area that is opening soon. I can't wait to have coffee at my doorstep. I am crossing my fingers it will be good coffee!
