It's time for another birthday cake!
What will it be this time?
LIGHTNING McQUEEN was the request...in 3D nonetheless!
Now, I can't imagine anyone not know who Lightning McQueen is...but just in case, here is a picture of him:
|Main Character from the Cars movie|
The first place I went to was Wilton Cakes...and there I did find a 3D Car pan. I ordered it and an icing color kit to match Lightning! When it arrived, Abi and mixed up the cake and baked it.
After letting it cool down, I shaped it to match Lightning and added in the fin on the back from portions I cut off. Then it was frosting time. Abi asked if she could help so I let her put on the red:
By the time we were finished that night, this is what Lightning looked like:
And as good as he looked...it just wasn't quite finished...so this morning we decided to add decals to finish him off. Now I will admit, that I could have gone all out and done frosting decals, but honestly I wasn't up to that, so we just did paper decals. I think they still turned out great!
So...here is the finished Lightning McQueen:
HAPPY BIRTHDAY NATHAN!
Nathan was very pleased with how it all turned out and that is of course what it is all about!
