How to Make a Motorcycle Cake

Updated February 21, 2017

So its your birthday and you love motorcycles. Why not celebrate with a chocolate or strawberry motorcycle cake? Making a motorcycle cake is as easy as purchasing a motorcycle cake mould and whipping up a cake batter. Why not celebrate your birthday blowing out the candles on your motorcycle cake?

Locate a motorcycle supply store, preferably one that sells just about anything. Some of the Harley Davidson hobby shops sell a variety of different types of souvenir items. You might find the perfect motorcycle cake mould in this type of shop.

Buy a cake mix at your local market. Read the instructions on the back of the box to determine if you need any additional ingredients. Some cake mixes are complete and some require a couple of eggs.

Preheat the oven to the suggested temperature on the cake mix box. Follow the directions on the box in order to prepare your cake mix properly.

Grease and flour your motorcycle cake pan so the cake mix does not stick during baking. Or if you are lucky, your pan will already be coated with a non-stick finish.

Pour the cake mix batter into the motorcycle mould. Do not overfill or your cake mix can rise up over the top and spill during baking. Set your timer to the suggested baking time on the back of the cake mix box.

Remove the motorcycle cake pan from the oven when baking is complete. Set it aside to cool. Once the cake is cooled, frost the motorcycle cake with the frosting of your choice.


Make sure to purchase all necessary ingredients during your market visit. There is nothing worse than to return home only to find you forgot an important ingredient.

Why not search for a motorcycle shaped birthday candle? What better way to celebrate the motorcycle enthusiast's birthday than with a lighted motorcycle candle on top of a motorcycle cake.


Do not over bake your cake. Burnt cakes are never appetizing.

Follow the cake mix instructions perfectly. If your mix calls for eggs and you forget them, your cake is ruined. Pay attention to detail.
