Just Take A Moment And Marvel At The Car-Cakes Of Japan

I happened to see someone’s happy birthday post on Facebook that featured a remarkable Toyota Crown cake. This thing was the Finnegan’s Wake of automotive cakes. I’m pretty sure I’ve never seen a better car-cake. Curious, I found out who made it, and, oh boy, if car-cakes are your thing, put down a dropcloth to catch all of the blown-mind chunks you’re about to deal with.

The cakes are from a bakery in Japan called MCakes, run by a baker/cake artist named Megumi Suzuki. She makes all kinds of cakes, but I’m just interested in the automotive ones. In that arena, I’m pretty sure she’s the undisputed Queen of the automotive cake.

Here, just look at some of these I grabbed from their gallery:

Z-Car/Fairlady cakes. What flavor would a cake like this be? Motor oil? Straight-6 flavor?

Pixelating the frosting license plate of a cake car is sort of mind-scrambling.

Jeep cake! You can even tell it’s a JK.

That’s either an Alphard or a Vellfire.

Anyway, I have no idea if these can be shipped halfway across the world, but if so, I think I’d like to see about a nice yellow Beetle cake for my next birthday/parole/wake.

There’s a place in Bellevue, WA. that can do good car cakes. This was my wedding cake. It was hot out, so there were some components failing by the evening, but no bad for frosting.
