My plan had been to make a 2 layer cake, and frost it with a road, then drive our 'Cars' toys all over it, as three-dimensional decorations. But the toys were at home and the cake had to be made.
I ended up doing this:
|Take one blank white sheet cake...|
|Trace out the basic outline with a toothpick, and start to outline it with the red icing. Choose not to think about the chemicals and dye numbers that made that icing so very red.|
|Red - completed. On to the details!|
|Headlights, eyeballs, and etc.|
|Finish off with black outlines and other decorations.|
|Ready, Sing, Blow!!!|
