Look on ebay or ask her to provide the car. You can also make it out of fondant, or MMT. My first "Cars" cake, I purchased the Wilton 3D car pan and sculpted it to look like the "Lightning MCQueen". To get more servings I put it on top of a square cake that was decorated to look like a checkered flag. If you look in the gallery for a "Cars" cake, there are some excellent ideas.

Make them out of Gumpaste or fondant mixed with tylose or purchase a toy from a toy department. My Mario characters are made out of fondant and tylose.

I may be wrong but I thought I saw some Cars toys at Walmart last night for about $3. Just the basic car toys of the different characters. Not 100% sure on the price but I remember thinking they were pretty cheap for Cars toys.

I always advise the customer that if they wants toys/dolls etc on the cake...They supply them.I don't have time to run around looking for specific toys etc...I have never had an issue with that policy.

The small dye-cast cars are $3.95 not on sale for the basic models. The ones with submarine or wings for Finn or Holly are $7.

When someone orders a character cake from me, I always add at least $10.00 to the total price for toppers and I always advise the client of this extra charge and why. I never make any copyrighted characters myself (don't want to get into trouble!) so I make sure to tell the client that they may provide their own or I will purchase it for them. I order them from amazon, ebay, birthday express, or birthday direct.
