Shitbox Rally Cake

Handi's Cakes has donated  Shitbox Rally logo cake to support their work in raising money for Cancer Council New South Wales. Shitbox Rally is a really insane rally idea, they use crappy cars, each car must costs less than $1,000 to rally from Brisbane to Darwin. I am sure the rally team will have a great time laughing/ maintaining/ driving the crappy cars, check out progress of the rally from the blog.

Please support Shitbox Rally with your deepest pocket, the rally team is doing a wonderful work for a great cause and they are $15,000 under at the moment.
