How to Frost A Cake

If the cake is very soft and crumbly, apply a “crumb coating” to prevent cake crumbs from mixing with the frosting. Spread a thin layer of frosting over the entire cake, then let stand 5 to 10 min. or until frosting is set. Spread remaining frosting over cake.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from My mom made this birthday cake for my son's 3rd birthday. My mom made this birthday cake for my son's 3rd birthday. Everyone at the party loved it and it turned out really cute. The one thing that did happen to the cake is that the car started to separate before serving but it still tasted great. I would recommend keeping it in the refrigator until time to serve because it seemed that the frosting did not stick too well or put some toothpicks in it to keep it together (take toothpicks out first though!)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I used this recipe to make Lighten' Mc Queen from the movie Cars. I used this recipe to make Lighten' Mc Queen from the movie Cars. I would recommend using frosting rather cool whip. Cool whip is not firm enough. Also, I used 6 drops of food coloring and it was pink. I had to use so much food coloring, more like 40 drops,I wasn't sure it would be safe to eat!! He came out cute. Used the excess cake as a spoiler and stuck it back in with toothpicks.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from My son loves the movie Cars. My son loves the movie Cars. So my hubby and I had a date night project and made 2 of these as a surprise for his birthday - a Lightning McQueen & a Sally. They were the hit of the party! We used regular frosting, as the cakes were going to be sitting out for awhile. Adults and kids all loved them!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I followed the recipe and carved it into Lightening McQueen. I followed the recipe and carved it into Lightening McQueen. The kids and grown-ups were in awe of the carving and decoration but no one was really in awe with the cake. I would recommend making my own cake next time but following everything else in the ingredients.
