I have a couple of grand kids that are into cars and anything with motors, wheels and keys.  So when I made these edible race cars, they were an immediate big hit!  They seem best when eaten in pieces like an Oreo cookie, a little at a time, and saving the best for last -- the Twinkie!

Making the Speed Racer Twinkies

You will need:

Eight Twinkies
Licorice  circles (or Oreo cookies)
Dot candies or  peanut M&M’s
2 cup powdered sugar
2-4 tbsp. milk
Red, orange, yellow, blue food coloring

In a bowl slowly add milk to the powdered sugar until you get a thin but not runny consistency.  Divide the  icing into four or more bowls (depending on how many colors you are using) and mix in the food coloring.  I like to  put the  icing in a plastic squeeze bottle to decorate the Twinkie cars.  (You can also use a cake decorating kit or a plastic bag with a small corner cut out.)  Put stripes and numbers on each car.  Attach the wheels and dot candy with the icing.  Speed away.
