Cars Lightning McQueen Cake Topper Tutorial

Make a car cake by following these step-by-step instructions. Inspired by Lightning McQueen from the Disney Movie "Cars".  Make your kid's birthday cake special. A cake topper shaped into a car is an easy do-it-yourself project that will delight anyone who sees it. I am not a trained cake decorator. I am a mom learning how to make cakes with fondant. Each year for each birthday I get excited of making a new cake challenge!!!  There is something very special and satisfying about making your own cake. And it is great hearing your own kids comments about how wonderful it is. And they think mom makes the best cakes ever:))). It doesn't matter if it is not as a perfect as the store bought kind. Kids will have fun on their birthday anyway:)))

To make the car cake topper you will need:
#1 Fondant 
#2 Rice Krispies
#4 Buttercream
Black, yellow and red colors

You can watch my video on you tube. This car cake topper took about 4 hrs to make. I shrink the video as much as possible:) I hope you can enjoy it.

"Cabbage with Spaghetti Pasta"

This is just a great dinner idea. Something different then usual. This dish can be vegetarian or you can add any meat to it. I had made braised cabbage,  then my kids asked for spaghetti noodles so that's how I though of mixing it together. The perfect way to call it, is lenivie vareniki with cabbage (lazy dumplings).

White Shrimps Recipe

White shrimp are slightly more tender than other shrimp and their shells are slightly softer and easier to peel than other shrimp.  Also, large white shrimp do not develop iodine taste that other large shrimp do. Knowing how to cook shrimp in a few simple ways will give you plenty of ideas for planning your meals. This is my first time cooking in white wine, and the shrimps taste delicious in it.

"Vika's Chocolate Chip Cookies"

My daughter makes these yummy cookies. She took a cooking class in 5th grade. My family loves these Chocolate Chip Cookies. They are made with butter and a combination of white and brown sugars which produces a rich and CRUNCHY cookie. This famous classic American cookie is a treat no matter what the age or occasion. Enjoy it with a glass of cold milk.
