This creation was for one of my oldest and dearest friends. Her son was turning 3 and she wanted him to have the best birthday cake ever....Lightning McQueen. My first reaction after her reques was "OMG! Are you serious????!!!!" as I have never attempted such a cake and I avoided making it even for my own sons birthday in fear that it will not turn out right.
Anyway, I said I will try my best and this was the result.
The cake was originally an 8" square cake and shaped into a car. I divided the cake into 3 layers and ganached it to achieve a smooth surface before covering with fondant.
The details of the car and eyes were hand painted.
I loved this cake and it certainly was a pleasure to make.
