Volkswagen Hippie Cake


Volkswagen Hippie Cake

When I go to work on Fridays, I usually have no idea what kind of cakes I get to make that day. Some are more intimidating than others and some are just plain fun.

The Volkswagen Hippie cake was in the fun category!

Who doesn’t love throwing on random hearts and flowers onto a cake. Not to mention that the hippie van shape is pretty straight forward, so not to difficult with covering in fondant.

Then all you have to do is add the love!

    Just as I figure nothing else can surprise me, along comes a Van…made out of cake! As a “child’ of the 70’s. There wasn’t a time that I didn’t see a van zipping up and down the road (or be a passenger in one.). Now, I can (possibly) make one using cake. I am going to print the receipe out and surprise my grandchildren. Thank You so much! :)
