This Cars 2 cake is made from 2-6 inch layers on top and 2-10 inch layers on the bottom. Wooden dowels are used in bottom layers to support the top and one long dowel down the center of all to keep top from sliding. The flavors were just vanilla cake with butter cream icing as requested by the client, using dark blue, red, black and white fondant.
Logo and designs were all done free hand by looking at many pics from the Internet. The road around the bottom is just black fondant with white cut strips of fondant for the lanes. The flags on top were printed from Internet and taped onto wire. The characters were purchased as a kit from a cake supply store. I made this cake for someone else so I did not get to see and hear the reactions but the mother of the birthday boy said it was a big hit!
