Lightning in Neon Cake is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from I haven't actually made this yet, but will definitely try. Cars is my sons favorite movie and wants this for his birthday. Hopefully it will turn out as nice as the picture. Looks like it will be a little bit difficult and has many techniques involved.
