I am planning on making my son (who's turning 5) a car themed cake. He LUVS cars, so I've done the 3-D car thing 2X already. I'd like to do Hot wheels cars on some kind of road mat and was thinking of using chocolate molds for the cars.

Any other ideas for how I could do those little Hot wheels cars?? I'd like them to be edible and I'm having trouble finding car chocolate or candy molds in Canada! It will cost me a fortune to ship for a $2 item.

It seems like little cars would be rather easy to just mold out of fondant/gumpaste mix. How are you with modeling? They would be just as edible and you could make a whole bunch. I like the idea of doing a road mat or some sort of track; that's the first thing that comes to mind for me when I think of Hot Wheels.

Great idea! I"m not that experienced with modelling. But always willing to try something new! I"ll look for a tutorial.

There are lots of ideas in the gallery. I think if you just look at the cars, it should be pretty easy.

My nephew is also turning 5 this week and we found a great cupcake car display in the gallery that my sister-in-law is going to replicate, by dabear.

It just looks like a block of fondant, then squish it in a few places, put a piece of white for the windshield, use a piping tip to cut out circles of white for the headlights and a larger circle tip to cut the tires out of black.

Here are some other ideas from the gallery.
(This first one looks like a mold was used.)
