A CARS movie Cake for a Birthday Boy..!

A Cars 2 movie theme birthday for an adorable son.. and yet another test for poor old me.!!


Yup.. Its my adorable son Ryan’s Birthday. And he has grown … Oh My..!! Any Mom would agree with me if I told them that the biggest reality check comes when you look at old photographs of kids and then look at them standing in front of you. The rate at which they grow is amazing. Every year its the same person you know, but in a different package, years gone by and lots of memories left behind.

This year Ryan has let go off his Spider-Man, Superman and Ben 10 in favor of the Lightning Mc  Queen of the Cars fame. He wanted and he got all his gifts related to CARS movie. I was all ready to make him his favorite chocolate cake, but was in for a shock when he announced (quite strictly I must say) that he would have a CARS cake and nothing else. Being the doting mother, I had no choice but to try and put up a car cake some way or the other. I tried all the bakers in the area for a car mould, but no luck. Finally I hit the Internet for help, and the result was a solid smack on my face. It was a bit too complicated for me.  But hey check out for yourself..!

OK, hold the GIGGLES and WIGGLES… there is MORE..


Now… if you are not already roaring with laughter, hear me out. The cake had to be carved and it was my first time. I also had no prototype except for a picture. I tried fondant for the first time from scratch, realized that I needed more practice on that. Some how I got the chocolate cake, fondant covered CAR on the caramel cake podium and voila it split into two pieces. I pushed the two pieces together as I had no time to do it over again and sat looking in despair at what was left. It looked like a car, but not quite, if you know what I mean. sigh… and another sigh…!! My darling sister saved the moment for me.  I sent her a photo of the cake to her mail and she told me, “Sis, the car looks like it was in an accident’. And there the moment of revelation came.

Presenting before you, Lightning Mc Queen after an accident on the race track. 🙂 and a nice made up story to go with it. Was Ryan happy? He was delighted. Thank God for the imagination of 6 year olds.  And thank God for another year to prepare myself and brush up some skills before the next birthday..!!  And of course thank God for Internet and laptops.!!

YIPPIEE ..!! Happy Birthday Son..!

      Cherie, I did check out Tavola, but they had cupcake sized pans and not a proper cake pan. They have also started a new cake supplies shop next to Carrefour. But no Luck. I saw the pic u sent, that was a lovely cake. Lesson learnt from this Bday, never attempt the cake 8 hours before the cake cutting time. Start hunting a week ahead. 🙂
