Lightning McQueen Cake

Lightning McQueen is hand painted on Fondant with clear vanilla extract and food coloring gel.  If you need help in drawing Lightning try to find a coloring book picture and cut it out, photocopy and size the picture to fit in the cake.  Take the picture and lay it over the fondant to get the general shape.  With a toothpick gently go over the lines so that you get the general details.  Invest in a detailed paint brush that is food safe.  Paint in all of the colors and leave the black outlining to the last.  Ice the cake and lay the fondant painting on the cake then decorate around it.  This cake I used a buttercream frosting and added 1/4 cup of Hershey’s Cocoa Baking Powder and 2 tbsps of Chocolate Extract for the brown frosting.  The cake was a hit and they removed the painting to keep before cutting the cake.
