The making of a Police Car Cake

Here's a brief step-by-step of the Police Car cake I made for a 5 year old's birthday party...

First make two chocolate cakes.

Stick them together with buttercream, and carve into a car shape (at this point I should have taken a picture, but was so engrossed that I forgot), then cover in buttercream.

Apply a layer of white fondant, smooth and trim all round.

Then start applying the detail, windows and lights first...

...stripes, grill, and top light bar...

...more stripes, wheels, some lettering, a black strip around the bottom to 'lift' it, and a number on top...

...and voila! The finished article.
