Cars Birthday Cake or Nearly
(Bali - Indonesia)
Lightning McQueen Cake or Nearly
This was my first 3D racing cars cake that was ordered by my friend for her son's 2nd birthday. She said that her lovely son loves McQueen from Cars -The movie- and requested a car-like cake.
I did some research on how to create a cake to resemble a racing car like Lightning McQueen.
The base was 3 layers of moist chocolate cake with ganache filling and coated with buttercream. For the Lightning McQueen, I used a Red Velvet recipe. Feel free to visit my blog at www.kuebali.blogspot.com for the recipe.
It's really took lots of effort especially when coating the car-like cake with fondant but it's done now :D.
I sprayed the car-body with red-food-colouring from Betty Crocker because I didn't manage to get a real RED colour when I tinted the fondant.
It's not perfect but I'm trying to be :D.
Good to know that Arvian, the birthday boy, was so happy with the cake and everybody who came to the party were satisfied with the cake...
I definitely will make a racing car-cake again. You know...practice makes perfect...
