My husband suggested the Herbie version. I frosted the cake white, building up the frosting in some areas to make it look more like a bug. The windows, headlamps, and bumper, were all made of fondant. The wheels and number 2 were made from melted chocolate (chocolate covered donuts might have been cuter and easier! I used watered-down food coloring to paint on the fondant, and to paint the racing stripes on the cake. I changed the number to a 2, since he was turning 2.
