Lightning McQueen Cake

Although we decided to postpone my son’s 5th birthday party from Jan. to June, to take advantage of the sunny weather, I decided to make him a small birthday cake to celebrate with family on his actual birthday, too.

He requested a Lightning McQueen cake since he saw the Cars movie for the first time while visiting his cousins for Christmas.  Here is my simple rendition, using 2 loaf pans.  I’m not much of a sculptor and the cake was too moist for finely detailed carving…  I was just happy to see him smile and blow the candles out!

    How cute! My son just turned 5 a week ago and we had a Lightening McQueen party. We just had cupcakes, though!
