Lightning McQueen

Oh, what a cake!
This was an order for my friend Annika's "Cars" obsessed little boy Cameron.

This was a job and a half for me, as I wasn't feeling the best, hadn't made a car cake before, and hadn't tackled red icing before. but, even with all of those things against me, I think it turned out ok. I'm sure Cameron thought it was a toy, as he kept taking the wheels on and off, and wasn't keen on anyone cutting it.

I added the wording on the board as a last minute thing, and painted the letters to match the lightning strike on the car.
Chocolate mud cake, with vanilla frosting. I used vita weet for the back wing, RTR icing details.
