  • Favorite cupcake recipe or mix
  • 4.5 lb. White Ready-To-Use Decorator Icing
  • Red-Red Icing Color
  • Red Sugar Sprinkles


  • Cars Baking Cups
  • Cars Treat Picks

1) Make cupcakes

Prepare batter following recipe directions. Bake and cool cupcakes in baking cups.

2) Ice cupcakes

Tint white decorator icing red.* Use spatula and red icing to ice cupcakes smooth. (*Red icing deepens over time, so it's a good idea to tint icing one day in advance, using a little less icing color. When you're ready to ice the cupcakes, your icing should be the perfect shade of red to match Lightning McQueen!)

3) Decorate cupcakes

Sprinkle cupcakes with red sugar. Insert pick.

4) Serve and enjoy!

Assemble treat stand according to package directions. Position cupcakes on stand for a vroooming display.
