I am speed!

A couple of weeks ago I get an email from my sister in law that was titled "challenge".  She then asks if I would be willing to take on the challenge of making a 3D Lightning McQueen for my nephews birthday.  I can't count the hours that my son has spent on the floor with his cars from the "Cars" movie.  Lightning McQueen, Chick Hicks, The King and the rest of the gang have given us a lot of entertainment over the years so I decided to take on the challenge.  I have never done a sculpted cake but I'd never know if I could do it if I didn't try, right?

I was so relieved when this cake came together like it did.  It took me a total of 7 hours from start to finish but I was really happy with the outcome and hopefully the next time I make one of these the time will go down!  There were a couple things I would do different, but that's how you learn. 

So here are the pics of the finished product.  Let me know what you think!
