I don’t make white cake very often, so I turned to the queen of fun cakes, Amanda, from I Am Baker, for advice on the perfect white cake. She loves the white cake recipe from Cook’s Illustrated. So I adapted Cook’s recipe to make a single 9″ layer for the middle layer of the cake.

Spray the paper rounds and sides of pan with non-stick cooking spray with flour. In a small mixing bowl, combine milk, egg whites, vanilla extract, and almond extract; set aside Mix cake flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt in bowl of electric mixer at slow speed. Add butter; continue beating at slow speed until mixture resembles moist crumbs, with no powdery streaks remaining. Add all but 1/4 cup of milk mixture to crumbs and beat at medium speed (or high speed if using handheld mixer) for 1 1/2 minutes. Add remaining 1/4 cup of milk mixture and beat 30 seconds more.

The layers are iced with a luscious, easy-to-work-with Whipped White Chocolate Buttercream frosting from Comfortably Domestic. I used one batch of the frosting to do two crumb coats on the cake to completely hide the black layer. Refrigerated the cake overnight, then the day of the party, I made an additional half batch of the frosting to do the final frosting layer. After the cake was frosted, then I added additional powdered sugar to the remainder of the half batch to pipe the bottom border.

My grandson loved his special Cars cake, and I loved how easy it was to make. I made the layers from scratch, but you could use cake mixes.

My daughter printed the finish line banner on the computer and we hung it on wooden skewers. The top is decorated with M&Ms, star sprinkles, and Lightning McQueen and Mater. I piped the border at the bottom of the cake with a Wilton 1M star tip and then we crushed up some of the star sprinkles and sprinkled them on the border to tie it all together.
