My First Try at a Lightning McQueen Cake
One of my old friends from high school asked me to make a car cake for her nephew. Of course, I confidently said yes, since I've made a few car cakes before.
After a few days, I got a text message from her telling me that the kid's mom is requesting a Lightning McQueen cake. I didn't want to turn anyone down but I knew I just couldn't do a character cake. Just a bit of mistake will make it look like Tigger instead of McQueen ha ha ha kidding! I told her I couldn't do it but she insisted and told me to do something close to McQueen like a plain red car or whatever. Okay, she convinced me! So I didn't sleep the night before the birthday to make the cake. It was so hard to create but I'm quite happy with the results - not that much! We were joking about it that it was a cross between Herbie and Lightning Mcqueen but I'm glad it didn't look like Tigger! :-p

I didn't have a Lightning McQueen cake pan so I had to carve it. It's not perfect but I tried my best! It's my first time to do a carved cake. Also, I didn't have a toy Mcqueen to use as a model so I had to guess what he looked like in 3D form.
Instead of Rustee's, I wrote the kid's name and his age - just my idea. Plus, the Rustee's logo is kind of complicated. Everything is edible. It's a dense Devil's Food Cake, filled and frosted with vanilla buttercream, and covered in marshmallow fondant with fondant accents. Wheels were oreos glued with buttercream.
