I made a promise to a very dear little boy some time ago, that come his birthday I would make him whatever cupcakes he wanted. Come his birthday, he couldn’t decide, but he knew that he wanted a big cake and that Cars (ie the movie) had to be involved somehow. So his mum and I brainstormed and this was the result.
A double layer ‘tray cake’ filled and frosted with buttercream icing. So very very simple. A No 6 ‘racing track’ on top, and checkered flags all around.
Some grass, some flags and a few cars to add to his collection and we were all set to go.
The cake was an absolute hit. Little J was completely delighted and so were his friends. But most importantly, the cake itself was delicious. So very very moist and yummy. I think by the end of the evening there were only a few crumbs left on the board.
The sign of a good cake? I think so.
