Lightning McQueen Cake

I made this Lightning McQueen cake for my son Netanel's third birthday party. First I made 2 cakes, one 10x13 rectangle for the base and one in Wilton's car cake pan. I then used apricot jelly to place the fondant and created the yellow and white checkerboard base.

I placed the car on top and covered it with the jelly and red fondant. Then I placed white windows and yellow lightning bolts and the number 95 on the car. I used oreo cookies for the wheels.

Last, I used the Betty Crocker icing tips to put the black outlines on the windows, checkerboard, and to make the eyes. Then I brushed the whole thing with vanilla extract to smooth out the edges on the fondant.

It took me 3 hours to decorate the cake and I baked the cake the day before.
