It’s almost time for race day! The boys have really been into race cars recently so I thought that it would be fun to really go all out and create a race-themed party.
One of the things that the boys liked the most was the double chocolate race car cake! This cake was a focal point of our party and not only was delicious but it turned out so cute.
Making a Double Chocolate Race Car Cake
Although decorating this race day cake looks like it could be daunting, it really only takes a little bit of patience and a few materials. Here is what you will need:
- Two 9″ round cake pans
- Chocolate cake mix
- Chocolate frosting
- Multicolored circular sprinkles
- White decorating icing
- Black decorating icing
- Two die-cast race cars
I began by mixing the chocolate cake mix according to the directions on the box. I split the batter between two 9″ cake pans. After the two cakes have cooled, remove them from the pans. Put a layer of the chocolate frosting between the two layers.
You will then want to frost the rest of the cake with chocolate frosting.
To create the outline of the track, I used two bowls (one larger and one smaller). I pressed the rim of the larger bowl into the center of the cake and removed the bowl. Then using the white icing I traced the outline of the bowl. Using the smaller bowl, I did the same thing, and outlined it with the white icing.
Using the multicolored circular sprinkles, I placed the sprinkles all around the outside of the track. These sprinkles are meant to look like the crowd in the stands.
I then mixed a small amount of the black icing with the white icing to create a dark grey color. Using a small spatula, I filled in the area between the white lines for the track.
I then placed two die cast “race cars” on the track.
Not only does it now taste delicious, but it also looks so adorably cute!
However, did you know that chocolate is one of the biggest causes of heartburn?
The caffeine in chocolate as well as theobromide can keep the lower esophageal sphincter muscle from tightening and allowing reflux. This means that those decadent chocolate treats can come back to haunt you later.
