According to Miss Manners, what would be the appropriate thing to do when a friend is involved in a car crash on the highway? Fruit basket? Get well cards? We believe that sweets can heal almost any emotional trauma, so when my friend Noah got into a car accident, Billy and I decided to help him get over the pain of losing his beloved car by making him a Car Crash Cake.

The problems we had in designing this cake where numerous, the biggest of which being the lack of an oven. We made do with premade pound cake and some snazzy decorating techniques. If your friend just failed his biology test, try making an Evolution cake to inspire progress. If someone's dog died, you could always consider making them an Skelledog cake. This instructable may be used as a jumping off point for the solving of a wide array of emotional issues.

Step 1: Materials

We used a pound cake as our base since we felt it would be more resilient and rebound quicker after its surgery. This is our ingredient list, yours may look different:

1) Cake base
2) Icing (Four different colors)
3) Frosting
4) Mint Patties for wheels
5) Red Vines for the road barrier
6) Nerds for scattered car bits
7) Foil and Cardboard
