Vroom ..... Vroom .... this Lightning McQueen cake is for a little boy, Shalev, to celebrate his 3rd birthday. Shalev is a beautiful name and it means peaceful.
About this cake ... it is a 2-tier chocolate butter cake, covered with fondant. The base is one 11" round cake, sliced horizontally into two and sandwiched with vanilla butter cream. The car body is carved and assembled from one 8" round cake. This is the first time I'm making a car cake and there are still many areas to improve on - rolling/covering of fondant, the small details etc. Now looking at the picture, I should have made bigger wheels for the car... aiyo... how to win the race with these small wheels??
Happy Birthday, Shalev!
Hope you have a wonderful time celebrating your birthday with your family and many of your little friends.
