“KidMo” is sporting these cute Pit Passes that I made for each party participant.
They were super easy to make in Photoshop.
Each one as personalized with the attendee’s name!
Ok, Back to the CAKE!
This was my first attempt at a 2 layer cake AND my first attempt at using fondant.
I thought I’d walk you through the steps I used… Here goes!
First – I enlisted the help of “KidMo”.
Then, we got serious about the cake.
Well, I got serious about the cake (to the tune of 3am) LOL
And then came the fondant…
Ta’ Da!! Cars Cake! Cars Party! Cars FUN!
We had a great time celebrating the life of our Miracle Preemie (1 lb 3 oz).
He has overcome SO much in his first 5 years of life. He will have more trials to come but in the meantime….. we celebrate.
And, we celebrate CARS style!
