Get ready for the Summer of Love with Paul's super duper groovy Camper Van Cake. In this tutorial, Paul reveals his quick and simple way to create a colourful and fun cake. Set the scene perfectly - with a beach, green hills and blue skies complete with painted sea gulls.

In this tutorial, Paul demonstrates how to take a 8" square chocolate cake and turn into a 60's style camper van filled with delicious ganache. You'll be pleased to know that this cake is ideal for beginners, but could easily be turned into a much more complicated design - if you fancy stretching yourself.

This cake can be adapted to suit all kinds of different occasions - and the skills learned will help you make plenty of original designs. You could even challenge yourself to create an entire van, having learned some basic carving. This cake would be brilliant for a birthday celebration or for any car enthusiast.

We'd love to see your version of the Summer Lovin' Camper Van Cake - share your snaps with us on our Facebook page!
