For my grandsons birthday I asked to make the cake. The theme was Disney’s “Cars”. Being on a budget and not having many decorations to work with I looked online for some ideas. I found a cake that looked like it had green dyed coconut for grass so I used that idea. I couldn’t find any tiny racing flags in stores so I printed some from clipart and taped to a toothpick. I took some check ribbon I had on hand and wrapped it around the cake for that raceway feel. I mixed some food coloring together to try and get a gray for the road and then I placed the vehicles. I had bought the Happy Birthday letters at Wal-Mart and then tried to mix a yellow to write my grandsons name. All in all I thought it was pretty cute and it was made with LOVE.
For my son's 3rd birthday he wanted a "Cars" cake with McQueen, Mater and the tractor on it. I saw a Cars cake on this site with the number for a road and added to it.
I bought the cake undecorated at Publix and did all the decorations myself. I made a number 3 that covered the whole cake. The road was crushed Oreo cookies and yellow starburst for the lines on the road.
In the field for the tractor I used green dyed coconut and on the sides I used 100 calorie chocolate covered pretzels. I then made a "start/finish" sign out of scrapbook stickers and cardboard that said "Happy Birthday Brayden!
I made this Cars birthday cake for my youngest son's 3rd birthday. I used a white cake and buttercream frosting. I used crushed Oreos for the "road" and used the Wilton grass tip for the grass spots and the borders.
For the brown, I added cocoa to the buttercream and a little brown gel paste color. For the grass color, I also added a little cocoa and green gel paste. Then, I made the grass sprigs and borders a little darker green by adding more green gel paste.
This was my first birthday cake to make and I had a blast doing it, will definitely do it again!
Thanks to several of you who previously submitted to this site. Using your ideas along with several of our own we came up with this Cars Birthday Cake for our son's fourth birthday.
The cake was made from two boxed cake mixes. Each was baked in a 9x9 pan and I placed them next to each other. The cakes were iced entirely in yellow and trimmed in red. I used the Wilton grass tip to make the grass. The road and crowd areas were make using sprinkles. We added four die cast cars that our son is already attached to.
I got the idea originally for this Cars birthday cake from Raleys but we couldn't afford to buy one so I made one and just bought the topper. It took me almost 4 hours to do it all.
I used a 15in square cake pan and made 2 layers of the cake then covered the whole thing in white icing. I did the grass and confetti and did all the outlines and then did the checkered all around the edges.
Then wrote speeding on through Tyler Scott is turning 2. It was very fun and everyone loved it.
This Cars Birthday Cake is the first cake I've made. I made this for my son's 3rd birthday since he loves Disney Cars. I used the Wilton Cars cake pan and used fondant for the checker board background.
For the car I used buttercream frosting. I got the inspiration from the other cakes on this website and kinda did my own things here an there. This was pretty easy to make just a little time consuming.
My son loved this cake. Next time will be a John Deere cake for my son's 2nd birthday.
