Well, I think they’re cute, at least – and you’ve got to admit that the title is great alliteration, either way. 🙂
I’m still playing catch up on all the cakes I made before I started this blog, so today is a two-cake old/new combo post. Both are car cakes, so I thought it made sense to show them as a two-in-one!
I’ll start with the earlier cake. I made this one a few months ago for a coworker’s niece. The family was having a big party to celebrate her first birthday, and since the birthday girl’s favourite toys are her cars, a big car cake was in order! The cars are rice krispie treats covered in buttercream and then fondant.
…And here is the cake I made just this weekend. It was for another birthday, for a little boy this time. Evan is four this year, and he too loves cars and trucks, so another car cake it was! This time I did one car and one truck, and the cake is covered in all piped buttercream grass instead of fondant. The road is chocolate fondant on both cakes.
The other little “twist” on this cake is that I did the letters in 3D so they stood out from the front of the cake. It’s just something a little different, but I thought it was fun!
