I did a carved car cake for my sons 2nd birthday. I frosted it in buttercream and for the windshield and windows I made it a very light gray. I think it turned out well. I don't know if that helps but that is what I did.

This is how I do the windows, it gives you a 3-D look: http://acaketorememberva.blogspot.com/2010/04/car-cake-steps.html

If you are using fondant, then you can paint in shading with food color mixed with clear alcohol. I did this with a lightning mcqueen cake. I put a layer of white fondant over the top first, then layered the red on top. Then i cut the openings for the windows so the white showed through. Finally, I painted the widows. www.flickr.com/photos/cassandrabakescakes/5924877759/in/photostream

Hope this helps! Good luck!
