Lamborghini Diablo SE30 Car Cake

I had the awesome opportunity to see & create a Lamborghini Diablo SE30 car cake:

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 Flour Confections.
