Lightning McQueen, a character from the Disney/Pixar Cars 2 animation movie.
Having a soon to be 12-year old daughter has left me outdated with the cartoons kids watch nowadays.
Therefore, it calls for more time and effort researching on the character requested for kid's birthday cakes, also known as novelty cakes.
Here's my Lightning McQueen, for Alexander who turns 3 last week.
Notice the spoiler? The words should be the other way around. Note to self.
Assembling and carving the cake.
Crumb coating with buttercream.
Cover the cake with fondant and then only transfer to the cake board.
Stick on all the fondant decorations.
This is a smaller carved cake on top of a 6 inch cake and some cupcakes.
They are for Alexander's celebration in school with his friends.
Lightning McQueen banners and poster decorating the classroom.
That's Alexander with his friends singing the Happy Birthday song.
A memorable 3 years old Lightning McQueen birthday for Alexander.
