Step 1:

Roll out the blue fondant to about 1/4 of an inch thick and using a large round cutter make a cut.  Using the Zacto Knife cut the circle into 2/3s.

Step 2:

Roll out the white fondant quite thinly and using the small square cutter, make three cuts.  Alternatively, you could always use the Zacto Knife to make 3 squares. T

hen using the large circle cutter again, line up all three square and cut the tops off the squares with the round cutter.  This will make the tops of the squares rounded.

Step 3:

Roll out a piece of black fondant.  Using the tip cut out two circles for the tires.  Now, roll out a small piece of white fondant and using the tip, cut out to smaller circles for the centre of the tires. Using gum glue to attach the white centres to the black tires.

Step 4:

Using gum glue attach the white rounded squares “the windows” to the car.  Now you can attach the tires by using gum glue.
