A Car Cake With Working Lights

For the last cake of 2011 I made a car cake that was actually the wedding cake.

The bride wanted the lights on the car to light up, so I made the headlight covers out of isomalt and used some bulbs behind it to illuminate them.

The streetlights also had bulbs in them. I used the little bulbs that you twist to light...They should stay lit for up to 8 hours, which will generally give you long enough to have the cake stay lit up until the cake cutting happens!
