My grandson wanted a CARS 2 birthday cake for his 4th Birthday. I started with the grandstand made out of rice cereal treats and covered with melted chocolate. The “car fans” are fondant, time consuming but not difficult. I used brownies covered in melted chocolate for the race track and the checkered flag design across the front is made out of mini marshmallow and black licorice.
Each of the round cakes represents a different country from the movie. His birthday included a trip to Disneyland to visit Cars Land so I added a Mickey Mouse shape cake with Lightening and Mater wearing their Disney hats. This year my grandson went to the cake decorating store with me to pick out the sprinkles for his cake and we also found road signs and flags that fit the theme. That made it even more special when he saw the finished cakes all set up for his party.
