I had so much fun doing this cake, a quick freehand job, but none the less it was a favorite for my little boy

Cake I made for my boys, just because. They love the new Cars movie and I bought the pan, so i figured I'd make it for them. Orange cake with Crusting Cream Cheese Icing. I could have made the sides smoother, but they won't mind!

This was for a little girl who was born on the 4th of July, so we added fireworks around her name & a red, white & blue border!  I was very happy with how he turned-out!  I used the "NASCAR" pan, but it was a little long.  Next time I may try cutting a portion of the middle out - but that is also a very scary idea!  Thanks for looking!

Since this movie became popular with my kids as well as all others I have had many request for any kind of cake to go with it. This is made from the Wilton Lightning McQueen Cars pan covered in BC icing. Pretty simple cake lots of detail w/6 colors!

Lightning McQueen FBCT...sooo fun to see it turn out!  Other idea would be to put lightning bolts around the outside of the cake...but it was late, and I was done!

This is Lightning McQueen from the Disney movie Cars.  I made this cake for my son's 2nd birthday this past weekend.  He is all about Cars (the movie) right now and he LOVED this cake.  His reaction to it is was priceless!  It is actually a red velvet cake made in the 3d Car cruiser cake pan.  It iced in buttercream with fondant accents.  The wheels are mini donuts covered in fondant.  This cake actually looked bettter in person.  I think the flash of the camera highlights all the flaws.
Thanks for looking

This is both cakes that I did for my son's 2nd birthday.  The half sheet cake is 1/2 white cake and 1/2 chocolate cake, iced in buttercream.  The cars are actually the toys that he had gotten out of the Happy Meals.  He loved both of his cakes, as did all the party guests.  That always makes me feel good!

Thanks for looking!

I made this cake for my sons 3rd birthday party.  My DH was the one who came up with the design and he was there every step of the way helping me decorate.  The cakes were frosted in IMBC then airbrush brown.  I enjoyed making this cake very much everyone loved it.

The Wilton Cake Pan makes it very hard to take any credit for such a simple cake. Just followed the concept of the picture. Cake was French Vanilla with strawberry filling.

I made this for my son's 5th Birthday. He wanted McQueen to be blue instead of red. So we sent McQueen off to the "body shop" for a new paint job.

I made this cake for my cousin's end of the season baseball party...They are the Tulsa Lightning, thus the reason for the cursive L's on the side of the cake.  The baseball, lightning, and circles are fondant...the rest is buttercream.

Chocolate cake, BC icing, top done with star tip. (First attempt at this.) My 6 yr old was more than thrilled with his cake. I was so glad it turned out as well as it did. The cake itself was pretty easy to do once I had the outline of the car. Although the photo shows there were some small "spaces" in the road, noone could see them looking at the cake.. ;) I think my camera is too good for my own good. lol

Second shot of cake with candles. "Happy Birthday Brandon" was piped around the side of the cake which I had frosted with a "color swirl" effect. (Something I just thought looked cool LOL)

I was happy with the improvement on this cake, compared to my first go. still a fiddly one to do though - very time consuming.

This was done just for fun.  It was my first "free hand" cake.  I used the Wilton car pan.  I built the spoiler with the cake I'd cut off the bottom.  The wheels are made with Thin Mints.
