Racetrack Cake

My cousin's son is turning 2 and they've asked me to do a car-themed cake for his birthday.  His sweet grandmother (my aunt) drove 3.5 hours one way just to pick up the cake!  The cake we decided upon is a racetrack cake.

Racetrack Cake

The flavors are yellow and chocolate pound cakes with butter cream fillings and covered and decorated in marshmallow fondant.
Close-up of the in-field (is that what you call it??).
The crowd is simply candy sprinkles.  The hubs said that from now on when he looks at an aerial view of a sporting event, he'll think of sprinkles!  The tiny cars are hand-made of gumpaste.
The view from the side.
I knew that I wanted the cake to look like a checkered flag.  We even carved in the sides a bit to look like a waving flag.
We all loved it and hope that he does too!  Happy birthday, Jr.!

Peace and Love, Jen

Graduation Cake and Matching Cupcakes

Look "Whoos" Graduating!

Yellow cake with buttercream filling, covered and decorated in yummy marshmallow fondant.
Of course, you need cupcakes!  These matched the cake colors.  White frosting was red velvet cupcakes with cream cheese frosting.  Pink frosting was either chocolate or vanilla cupcakes with buttercream frosting and blue frosting was either chocolate or vanilla with cream cheese frosting.

Congratualtions to Kacie on her Kindergarten graduation!

Peace and Love, Jen
