Still full of lovely stuff: Candice Brown recreates small-scale version of famous ŠKODA Fabia cake

Baking fever has once again gripped the nation – and ŠKODA UK is no exception. The car manufacturer has partnered with professional baker and 2016 Great British Bake Off winner Candice Brown to re-imagine a delicious, small-scale replica of the iconic Fabia cake. It comes more than a decade after ŠKODA’s advert, which saw a life-size version of the Fabia car made entirely out of cake.   

Candice drew inspiration from the new sporty ŠKODA Fabia Monte Carlo that launched in September. The car’s ‘interior’ was built from six layers of fluffy lemon sponge sandwiched together with a mouth-watering citrus-infused buttercream, before being carved to form the shape of the car. For the ‘exterior’, Candice used fondant icing to sculpt the newly designed LED headlights, wheels, windscreen wipers, front grille and the detail of the ŠKODA badge to create a perfect imitation of the car.

The original cake which starred in the hit 2007 TV ad was nearly four metres long and one-and-a-half metres high, so Candice has released the recipe for a small-scale version which means aspiring bakers can make it at home. The recipe is available at www.skoda.co.uk/FabiaCake

Candice commented: “Everyone remembers and loves the original ad so when I got the challenge through to recreate the new Fabia out of cake, I jumped at it. We’re encouraging everyone and anyone to have a go to see if they can recreate the car.

“The beauty of baking is that it doesn’t matter how good or bad you are, regardless of what it looks like cake is always delicious, so you can’t go far wrong…hopefully.”

Aspiring bakers are encouraged to share their own homemade Fabia cake creations using #FABIAcake to win a baking lesson with Candice. The competition closes on Monday 5 November.
