Are you comfortable with 3D cakes? I would probally do a sculpted Lightening McQueen but I would make him shorter and chubbier to make him look like a baby. Than add a bonnet or diaper and give him a pacifier.

I was going to suggest pretty much the same thing as the last post. Disney babies (especially the princess dolls) are chubbier and have bigger eyes...plus the soother, rattle, etc. Do a chubbier 3-D shape and add baby accessories. Have fun!

You will probally want to modify it a little bit (like shortning the hood) to make him more baby-like.

My son has a "cars" set that are called mini's . Alot smaller and "chubbier" if you google im sure you could find something to go by for decorating.

You could also make the baby accessories car like...like lightening McQueen could have a bottle with gas and a rattle that's a car tire...things like that to help with making it more babyish. Sounds really interesting! I can't wait to see the finished product!
