A racetrack cake salutes the fun that both racers and spectators experience when watching a great race.
There are all sorts of races - car, trucks, bike, foot, horse and dog, and more....
It doesn't matter which race it is, they are all exciting to watch and have lots of fans, both young and old.
Are you a Nascar fan?
Maybe Formula One?
Planning a kid's birthday party theme as a car party?
This would be a great cake to make, and then put on top whichever type of vehicle applies.
This cute cake was made by my friend Katherine, for her son's birthday party.
But, when you think about it, because people old and young alike seem to love racecars, it is no surprise that this might be a fun birthday cake theme.
Because love of cars is so universal, you could use this cake for an adult birthday party or teen birthday party (car theme cakes are great for that 16th birthday party when teens are getting their driver's license)
Kids would love this car cake as part of a race car party, or use any of the fun car cakes for the party too.
Here is another take on the idea:

When mentioning a race track, some people naturally first think of Horse Racing!
The easiest way to accomplish this cake would be to put together a cake with several figurines.
Another option is to create a cake in the shape of a horseshoe. Wilton used to make a pan in the shape of a horseshoe, and if you can find one (try ebay) it could tie in for the horse, and also be used anytime in the future you want to say "good luck' with a piece of cake.
