Lightning McQueen Cake

You may remember how my husband created these amazing tissue paper roses for Valentine's Day. 

Let's face it.
Though he may appear to have hobbies related mainly to anything and everything athletic, 
the man can craft.

And as part of LM's birthday festivities, he proved that once again.
I found these Lightning McQueen stickers on sale and was going to just stick them on cardstock, tape them on to little skewers and stick them in the cake.

But he went the extra mile and created a McQueen on the cake. And the way he did it was just to drop some food coloring on the already white-frosted cake and literally draw Lighting by mixing the frosting as he shaped it. 


I can't really describe it very well, but bottom line:
LM LOVED it.
