Cover your cake with the Brilliant white sugarpaste, smoothing and neatening the edges around the base.

You will need  modelling paste approximately as follows:

150g red / 60g black / 20g grey / 15g white / 15g yellow

Step 1

Cut krispies into required shapes and push together to stick.

Step 2

Take half the red modelling paste, roll out thinly and cover car shape.

Step 3

Neaten around bottom edge. Roll out other half of red paste and cover car with second layer.

Step 4

Reserve a little of the black paste. Take the remainder and divide into four for the wheels. Mark with a round cutter. Cut out a disc of white paste, make an indent in centre of wheel and stick the white disc into this. Add detailing. Paint centres with silver paint.

Step 5

Stick wheels onto car, along with a grey helmet, and aerodynamic pieces at the front and back. Either pipe, or make a very long thin ‘sausage’ of paste, to make a black outline around the car. Add further detailing if required.
