Lightning McQueen and Mater Cake
This marvelous Lightning McQueen and Mater cake shows how a buttercream cake can be used to create a terrific edible portrait and sculpture of them driving in the hills near Radiator Springs.
This wonderful cake was made by Cake Make With Love.
Firstly, I like the way this artist combines 2 dimensional drawings with 3 dimensional objects to give the entire cake more dimension.
Secondly, notice how the rock on the top of the cake and the slab on top is 3 dimensional. It was most likely made using cake or rice Krispies treats. The bottom of it is painted to onto the top of the cake to blend in the 2 dimensional with the 3 dimensional. The green cactuses are dimensional and were probably made using fondant.
Thirdly, it looks like Mater and Lighting were hand-painted on a piece of gumpaste and attached to the cake. This allows the cake to stay covered in buttercream and to have a hand-painting of Mater and Lightning.
Fourthly, the cake is buttercream and the top half is sky blue to represent the sky and the bottom is brown to represent the ground.
