Google How 2 Cakes under 3D cars for a lovely tutorial.

Hello.....I just did a Lightening McQueen Cake for this past Saturday. I am learning how to sculpture cakes, but because this was a last minute order, I used the 3D Cruise Car cake pan from Wilton. I decorated it just like Lightening McQueen, but put in #3 in place of the #95, (child was turning 3) and also put his name "Max" on the hood of the car. I used buttercream icing to make a small spoiler on the back of the car.
The cake turned out great! icon_smile.gif

I think there was actually a how to on cc about this exact cake but not got time to check as need to pick up kids. Basically the womn used an oval tin and carved a bit from there and used small circle cookie cutters to cut out some cake before adding wheels...looked pretty simple from what she was doing so must have been a good tutorial!

Good luck,

I forgot to tell you that you can go to and look for Lightening McQueen on there. Once you are on the site, pick "vehicles" on that screen, pick "race cars" and it will take you to a page with several pictures of Lightening McQueen. I chose 04 Annette K. and worked from that picture to make mine.

Thanks all for the info I ended up using the wilton 3-d crusier pan added spackel to make it look more like a race car.. Then covered in fondant, it took a while to make I only had a picture to look at and not a figuring but the dad who is my cousin was very very happy so was I for a first time try at it... icon_biggrin.gif
