I will be making a Disney Cars cake for a 2 yr old. Wanted to have the car sitting on a checkered flag but not sure how to go about making it. I have seen some on the site where it was piped in - but really didn't like it. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

You could make it out of fondant. Make the base white and put black squares on it.

I did two cakes like this, they are in my gallery... I think it's the easiest way thumbs_up.gif

I was going to do that on my Cars cake, but ran out of time. I don't have an airbrush yet, so I bought a can of that Wilton spray stuff (you can buy it at Michael's) and was going to use a stencil with it. Good luck!

I have a chess cake in my gallery where I have a white cake with black squares.
