Here is the main cake of the Cars cupcakes I posted on my instagram yesterday. This follows the design concept of my Toy Story cakes wherein the layers of the cake are patterned on the movie characters.

For this Cars cake, the top layer is patterned after Lightning McQueen and the bottom layer is Tow Mater. I covered the cake board with a checkerboard design to make it look like a finish line flag.

Cake details:
Bottom: 8″ round
Top: 6″ round
Flavor: Red Velvet with cream cheese filling
Icing: Fondant
Accessories: Gumpast
