Race Car Cake

My little boy turned 4 recently and he is totally into cars right now. When we accelerate quicker than normal while driving, he squeals with glee and begs us to drive like a race car again ;). So, for his birthday cake, race cars seemed fitting…Race car cake at whatilivefor.net

I just made a 9x13 strawberry cake (because his favorite color is pink right now). I leveled the top of the cake, made a road out of chocolate frosting, used white frosting to draw the lanes & finish line, and added grass.

My husband saw it and laughed because it’s another green and brown cake, much like this one, this one and this one, but C loved it and kept trying to drive the cars to the finish line :).

I’m so excited to see what C accomplishes as a 4 year old!
