Cars Birthday Goodies


My friend Susan is throwing a Cars themed birthday this weekend for her little guy, Thomas, who is turning three.  She wanted a couple dozen cookies and cupcakes and gave me free reign to put something together for her.  I came up with a Lightning McQueen styled sugar cookie with a "3" instead of the original "95" he usually sports and some decadent double chocolate cupcakes with coordinating custom wrappers and picks.   Take a look to see the progression and the final products. Enjoy!

The Lightning McQueen cookies were labor intensive, but I'm really pleased with the results!  I did a trial run to try and figure out if I could recreate the character in royal icing:

Trial run

Some minor tweaks were made to the original prototype; nix the blue eyes, simplify the grille, swap out black headlights for white ones, and bling out the tires with black sugar crystals. And voila!  Below is the final product.




The cookies then got bagged and tagged with custom birthday labels and ribbon to be given out as fab edible favors  to party goers.


The cupcakes were less intensive, but still a great addition to her theme with the use of custom picks and wrappers.



Happy birthday, Thomas!
