Lightning McQueen Cake
This Lightning McQueen cake was made for my nephew. He is in love with the movie Cars, now that he is old enough to really pay attention and get into Disney movies.
My sister-in-law asked him what kind of birthday cake he wanted this past summer and he screamed out "Lightning McQueen!" She told him okay, but what flavor did he want, to which he again responded "Lightning McQueen!"
My sister-in-law is not in any way, shape or form talented with masking cakes so she called me. I just knew I wouldn't be able to cut a cake in the shape of a car without help, so I went to the party store and just my luck I found the cake pan in the shape of none other than Lightning McQueen! I brought the pan home and got right to work.
Once the cake was cooked and cooled, I had the big task ahead of me on how to decorate it to look like Lightning McQueen! I knew plain Jane frosting just wasn't going to do for this special birthday cake, so I looked around for cake decorating ideas and finally settled on using tips and cake decorators to pipe in the frosting for the car and the face itself.
The cake turned out just to cute, and my nephew did the cutest happy dance I have ever seen when I walked into the room carrying his very special Lightning McQueen Birthday cake!
