icon_surprised.gif I have an order for Hot Wheels cupcakes, I've looked on here and saw two "race" themed cupcakes made of fondue. I don't do fondue just icing. Can someone "please" help with any ideas beside the the few I have of my own???!!! Thanks in advance!

If it were me I'd just do them in race car colors and set a matchbox toy next to it, but thats me being lazy and having no better ideas. icon_redface.gif

what about finding a pic of a hot wheel car ( like a coloring book ) and doing a chocolate transfer. I think those would look cute sitting on top of a cupcake. hth icon_smile.gif

i had to do cupcakes to go with some car cookies that i did. i made half with a road and actually placed a car on, and the other half was supposed to look like a tire on the cupcake. the candles have something to do with the bar mitzvah.

If you can get hold of Carol Deacon's "Sporty Cakes" book she has a "quick & easy version" of her Motor Racing cake - similar to kneadacookie's nifty racing car cupcakes above but with quite simple racing cars made from sugarpaste. This could easily be made as cupcakes. Good luck!
