Danny saw a Cars cake at Walmart a few months ago. That's what he wanted for his birthday. Um...nope. I don't think so. I'm not the mama who buys Cars birthday cakes at Walmart (no offense to the mamas who do buy Cars birthday cakes at Walmart).
I was going to copy the cake my friend made for her little boy last year. Then I remembered a page that I had ripped out of a Family Fun magazine several years ago. I keep it in my pile of Stuff I'd Like to Make Some Day. You can see my inspiration over at the Family Fun website.
Look at that grass! It's my favorite part of the cake. I bought a grass tip to pipe it. If anybody wants to make an Oscar the Grouch cake, come on over and borrow my grass tip. I think it would make perfect Oscar fur.
See those flags? I spent a good half hour coloring in those little squares with my fine tipped Sharpie...at midnight. I'm surprised the lines turned out as straight as they did.
A view from the top.
I bought three new cars for the top of the cake. I don't know the yellow guys' names but the orange one is my favorite. His name is Snot Rod. I have no idea if he's a good guy or a bad guy (I've never seen the movie) but I love his name!
Danny liked the cake. He blew out those candles twice since he requested the Happy Birthday song about smelling like a monkey in a zoo. I knew he would.
p.s. A big thanks to Judy for capturing that last picture. It's my favorite.
