How to make it

  1. Racetrack Cake Step 1

    Cut a small semicircular notch from one cake, then position the cakes as shown and cover them with the white icing.

  2. Place a small bowl in the center of each cake and sprinkle cookie crumbs around it to create the track.

  3. Remove the bowls and sprinkle sprinkles onto each icing circle, then press the remaining sprinkles onto the sides of the cake for grass.

  4. Lay a white Good & Plenty dotted line along the track and use a pastry bag to pipe a white icing border around the edge of the cake.

  5. Create racing flags by taping small squares of the paper or ribbon to the toothpicks and place them on the track along with the race cars.
