Roll red fondant 1/4" thick and cut numbers; allow to dry overnight. Roll a white piece of gumpaste thin and cut an 8" license plate; rounding the corners. Allow to dry overnight. Cut 1/2" circles out of 1/8" thick gumpaste and use poly blade to score in half. Paint circles with nu-silver luster dust mixed with grain alcohol or lemon oil. Use clay extruder to make a single ropy border and attach to license plate with piping gel. Cut blue letters using cutter and attach with piping gel. Attach nuts to plate as well.
Roll light gray fondant to desired thickness then roll diamond plate texture sheet to make the board cover. Brush board with piping gel and lay diamond plate textured fondant over board and trim. Brush fondant with moonstone silver luster dust.
Roll black fondant to 1/4" thickness and long enough to go around the circumference of the cake. Roll tire tread texture sheet being sure to roll fondant the entire width of the sheet. When tread has been rolled the entire length of the fondant piece, use pastry roller to cut excess fondant off the right edge of the tire. This edge will be on the bottom of the cake. Brush cake with piping gel and attach fondant allowing the flat edge to fall to the center of the cake. When all fondant is attached and the ends are matched together; use poly blade to trim excess over what is needed to make the 2" flat edge on top of the cake. There should be an empty circle on top of cake. You will then need to cut a large circle out of thin black fondant to fill the empty spot. Roll a thin piece of light gray fondant and cut using the large circle cutter; use triangle cutter to detail hubcap. Paint with nu-silver luster dust mixed with grain alcohol or lemon oil. Attach to top of tire using piping gel. Stack cakes and insert dowel rods for support and stability.
