The Mini Car was created by the British Motor Corporation in 1959. It was a British icon for the 60's. It was actually voted the second most influential car of the 20th century.
Here is Le Gateau's take on the Mini:
This cake was for a very special lady's 50th birthday.
Its made from alternating layers of chocolate and vanilla cake with vanilla meringue buttercream. Everything on the car is edible, all made from fondant and gum paste.
The birthday girl and her hubby are in the mini, along with their cute little puppy. The cake board is actually a map of the world, with flags to show all the places they have travelled together. Its painted on with royal icing.
