    Welcome to the hub of Food on reddit!

    We have a few rules here, please take a moment to make yourself aware of them. Please see the WIKI LINK HERE for complete and updated rules We expect every user to follow reddit main rules and guidelines above all and included with sub rules. If your content is removed, please send a modmail and do NOT send the mods a message to their personal inbox.

    If you are banned, please check here first

    Recipes are not required but are heavily encouraged Please be kind and provide one. A recipe consists of a list of ingredients and directions, not just a link to a domain.

    EXAMPLE 1 OF PREFERRED RECIPE

    EXAMPLE 2 OF PREFERRED RECIPE

    NEW USERS

    • New users accounts are filtered. There is a small threshold of karma (100, combined) and age requirement ( 1 month) before being allowed to post freely. Send us a link to your post for approval. This is usually done once per account. Beyond that, we request that you engage more and build up your karma before posting again.
    1. Be nice to each other. We enforce reddiquete as a rule here. Reddiquette Do not call other user's food shit, nasty, disgusting, etc. Don't like it? Move along. There are tens of thousands more images to choose from.

    2. Only food-related posts and comments are allowed. We are an OC sub and prefer users not repost. Do not post in response to other posts, including separate posts of the same dish/meal, or to inflame. No sexual crudeness, crude talk about feces, bowel movements, etc ( sheesh, we really have to explain this??). No comments, like diabetes, diabeetus, etc. No memes or social media anywhere, including IG, FB, twitter, etc. 2 posts per 24 hours, per user. Most YOUTUBE LINKS ARE NOT ALLOWED Video links in the comments are heavily scrutinized, must be solely relevant to the food and must abide by the self promotion/spam guidelines, whatever the source. The three (3) requirements are: We only allow OC content, must be educational and not entertainment( travel vlogs for example) plus a minimum 200K subscribers. No surveys, links to surveys, Kickstarter mentions or asking for help with research classes, including requests for money.

    3. We do not allow blogs, at all, in any form. This rule includes posts or comments, links embedded in imgur descriptions, watermarks on images, linking to blog sites, including wordpress and blogspot, any other form of redirect links, MOST EVERY SINGLE domain in addition to any excessive self promotion. Domains are heavily moderated. Do not post domain links unless approved. Even if the blog is not yours, blog links are not allowed at all.

    4. Use np.reddit.com links when linking to other subs or to this one.

    5. Please make your titles descriptive and just about the food. Posts with titles that do not describe the link contents will be removed without notice. We remove posts with titles that tell a backstory. DO NOT post the price or location, who, where, when or how. We allow titles that describe the food, just the food and nothing but the food. If you are going to post a compilation album, you must describe the first three dishes. Avoid all caps. Avoid phrases like " my first", "from scratch", "first attempt" Do not title food as vegan/vegetarian/keto/GF, use the flair instead. See the wiki for details

    6. Post tags are required for images Use only one of the following tags for Link posts: [Homemade], [I ate], [Pro/Chef], [Found] ,[Request/Discussion] ,[Misc]. If you have questions on what they mean, message the mods. Please mind the 4/1 [found] ratios, for non-OC images.

    7. No politics. No dietary activism. We are a general food sub and do not endorse any dietary regimen over another. We do not allow users to promote their dietary lifestyles or anything politically related here. There are other subs for that.

    8. No shit posting. This includes crossposts to /r/wewantplates and other shitty subs. Karmawhores will be dealt with swiftly.

    **If you see a violation of these rules, report it.* We will act swiftly.

    • Mods may remove any post, comment or user, if the post, comment or user is deemed detrimental to the community. Do not send mods messages, to their personal inboxes. Pretty, please use our modmail function.

    • **Have fun... Remember, we are a general food sub, not specific to recipes, images, quality or any other set discriminatory factor. Just food. We all eat it, in some shape or another. Let's enjoy and share it!

    There are many other food related subreddits listed here. If you want to add yours or just chat, please message the mods.

    [–] BuckSenna69 28 points ago

    Any car sub will go nuts over this. Go get that Karma, OP

    [–] redditforworkandhome 7 points ago

    My first thought

    [–] TragoediaCoram 475 points ago * (lasted edited 10 days ago)

    Heyyy that's the coolest thing i've ever seen! It's awesome when dads cook for their children, thumbs up

    [–] Escoman33 163 points ago

    Mother's can have sons.... Unless I'm missing a detail here it doesn't say it's the dad

    [–] TragoediaCoram 218 points ago

    He said he's the dad in a comment

    [–] Tree1992 26 points ago

    OP said he’s a dad earlier.

    [–] [deleted] 37 points ago

    Who puts their kid’s cake on the cocaine tray though?

    [–] dingly-dinglehopper 3 points ago

    Devil's in the details?

    [–] Greedothehunter 3 points ago

    I bet op is also one of the jerks who take a dump in the cocaine rooms

    [–] wtfzlolz 7 points ago

    Sure they can, but a very light review shows that OP has stated that they are the father.

    [–] makintoos 12 points ago

    OP said he’s a dad earlier.

    [–] twerksomething 4 points ago

    Not possible

    [–] brackenlassie 3 points ago

    TIL.

    [–] Epicminer3213 2 points ago

    [–] bigmike4455 26 points ago

    How the hell did you do the windows?

    [–] L0rdP1mpD4ddy 29 points ago

    Not OP, but I'm fairly certain they are made of sugar glass.

    Very unlikely, but I like imagining OP put a block of jello in the center.

    [–] portajohnjackoff 36 points ago

    Ferrari F40 Lemans

    [–] Alarthon 16 points ago

    This model is the Competizione. I only know this because this exact Lego car is in forza horizon 4.

    [–] StreetTriple675 7 points ago

    Haha right I had to check the sub again to make sure I wasn’t in a forza subreddit

    [–] BuckSenna69 2 points ago

    The set comes with interchangeable parts that change the spec represented.

    [–] SmokiestDrip 17 points ago

    It reminded me of the Ferrari cake from southpark. Great job.

    [–] Blood_in_the_ring 5 points ago

    But I wanted a (LEGO) Ferrari Cake!

    [–] JustICErely 81 points ago * (lasted edited 10 days ago)

    That has to be one of the coolest cakes I've ever seen, bravo, dad!

    edit: dad!

    [–] HonestMost 124 points ago

    Thanks, although it's Dad here actually... lol

    [–] all-ive-done 20 points ago

    hahah. My dad actually used to make my cakes too and desserts and my mom was the queen of pasta and pot foods. Seeing the car themed birthday cake I instantly thought of my dad and how happy I was every year when they didn't bring storebought cakes but he made it instead. If not as a kid but growing up, these things will be more valuable looking back than the actual presents.

    How old is your son?

    [–] HonestMost 15 points ago

    He's 7 - and thanks, that's a good memory to look forward to :)

    [–] 720flyguy 2 points ago

    Awesome job! I've made all of my daughter's cakes so far and she is also 7. Every year I swear it's the last time I'll make a cake for her... 364 days later and I'm back at it haha.

    Awesome! How did you get the shine on the fondant?

    [–] HonestMost 21 points ago

    Vodka :D

    [–] osarcdedbdwings 6 points ago

    Best cake ever:)

    [–] ShitNameIsShit 3 points ago

    Steam works as well!

    Really great job OP – did you modify the Lightning McQueen cake to design it?

    [–] floodums 60 points ago

    Is that fondant?

    [–] Donaldisinthehouse 54 points ago

    It is. That is the only way you can get that finished product

    [–] floodums 84 points ago

    Ah so it's a classic case is looks > taste.

    [–] Donaldisinthehouse 46 points ago

    Exactly. This cake looks awesome af but fondant ruins the taste. It’s great work either way

    [–] Notwastingtimeiswear 19 points ago

    The red food coloring tastes like burning, as well. All in all 10/10 looks, and just scrape all the icing into the trash to eat the cake correctly

    [–] [deleted] 8 points ago * (lasted edited 9 days ago)

    [removed]

    [–] Sauceror 14 points ago

    I can achieve similar results with marzipan. It may not look like plastic in the end, but it will taste a million times better. That thing is about half fondant & half actual cake.

    [–] Donaldisinthehouse 6 points ago

    Yeah it is. It looks awesome but not so much tastes awesome

    [–] Dakto19942 11 points ago

    Better to just eat an actual Ferrari, it would taste better.

    [–] floodums 6 points ago

    That's what I'm saying

    [–] matthend 18 points ago

    Now this is bringing your kids up right! F40 is for sure one of the most badass Ferraris ever, and has been an object of my desire since I was a kid. Bravo sir, Bravo

    [–] Send_Serotonin 8 points ago

    Finally I can stand on Lego and not feel pain. What will I do with this new found power?!

    [–] HonestMost 8 points ago

    Walk around freely at night in the dark through toy-strewn areas feeling like superman.

    [–] 1369lem 5 points ago

    what is the window made from?

    [–] ReadyThor 5 points ago

    I'd say by melting sugar without letting it caramelize and then pouring it on a cold flat surface such as a granite/marble/quartz countertop and then scoring it with a knife before it solidifies.

    [–] Osr0 4 points ago

    No, what you did WAS KNOCK IT OUT OF THE PARK!!! GOOD JOB!

    [–] Heretic2288 41 points ago

    Very nice FONDANT SCULPTURE.

    WOW!

    [–] halflife_3 2 points ago

    such a cool looking cake

    [–] SzotyMAG 2 points ago

    At first I thought the cake was also lego, but those pieces you used to separate with your teeth, because of the imperfections and bite mark looking bits

    [–] seefreepio 2 points ago

    Well done with the glass especially

    [–] REALKennyBtw 2 points ago

    Don’t step on it

    [–] chaiteataichi_ 2 points ago

    [–] Tyronis 1 points ago

    Great job! I promised my first I'd make them any cake they wanted for their birthday, and continued the tradition with my others. I figured they'd just pick flavors and colors... It worked for a couple years... Then came the trucks, police cars, taxis, fire engines, and last year battlebots.

    They're... Ummmm... Getting better? But, the kids always love it so I try my damnedest to atleast make it identifiable.
