Recently I had the pleasure of working on a very special project – a Ferrari Enzo car cake! I had the opportunity to work together with the highly regarded Manuel Latruwe, of
Calgary’s Manuel Latruwe Belgian Patisserie and Bread Shop.
And it was a joy to work with someone that has the same passion towards pastries and breads that I have towards cakes! His attention to detail and pride in his work trickles throughout – into
everything in his bakery.
The cake itself was a huge accomplishment – it measured nearly four feet in length, and was enough to feed well over 150 servings. The cake was for ZR Auto –
ZRauto.ca – Calgary’s own exotic auto performance center.

I had the awesome opportunity to see & create a Lamborghini Diablo SE30 car cake:
I can’t get over how special the Diablo SE30 is!
A few things I learned about the impressive Lamborghini Diablo Special Edition 30 while creating this cake:
it was designed with the powerful guts of a race vehicle, and has the option of an JOTA upgrade kit which would allow it to function as an actual circuit racer
it was released in 1993 to celebrate the company’s 30th anniversary
only 150 were made

How to Make a 3D Car Cake
Now how do you make a Lamborghini cake? I find that careful planning of size, proportion, and detail are key.
The very best resource I have come across in how to carve & sculpt a 3D car cake is the
Cakenology – Episode 1 Car Cakes DVD by Mike McCarey.
I have applied many techniques covered in this DVD towards other types of realistic 3D cakes.
This DVD can be purchased globally from Mike’s Amazing Cakes at
, or in Canada from Cakenology.com . Flour Confections
commercial is AMAZING! The above Skoda Fabia car is entirely edible. It’s stuff like this that gets me really excited about cake decorating!
