Excellent cake!! I love it! I'm contemplating whether I'm brave enough to give it a try for my son's 'vintage little red car' birthday party! VW Beetles are the theme! :D

I made a VW cake and It only took me about 3 hours to carve and frost....It isn't as smooth as I would have liked but it looked great anyway..I used little chocolate donuts for the wheels.
