I have been looking at the Lightning Mcqueen cakes in the galleries. There are some great ones. I was hoping someone could help me with directions for carving the 3-D cake. I have never carved a cake before, so I would need something pretty basic. I have done a little fondant work, not a lot but am willing to learn. Thank you so much for any advice you can offer.

I've only carved once so I'm afraid I'm not much help. The only thing I did learn is it's easier to carve the cake frozen (thawed just a bit). My suggestion would be to find a cake you like in the galleries and PM the creator of it and see if they'll help you out. Most people on here are very helpful in that regard. And if you don't feel up to carving you can do like I did (I chickened out last minute) and go to your local craft store and scope out the scrapbooking section! I have a lighning Mcqueen cake in my pictures using scrapbook decals icon_biggrin.gifthumbs_up.gif Turned out great! and the mom loved that she could use them to scrapbook her son's birthday - 2 for 1!

Make sure you get a nice cake recipe good for carving. Pound cakes are usually good.
