I had a lot of fun decorating this cake. It was made up of 3 layers of vanilla butter pound cake with whipped cream filling and slices of fresh strawberries. The frosting was a Swiss Meringue Buttercream. I crushed oreo-like cookies in the food processor and used them for the race track on top.
Tedious But So Worth It
We made this for a friend’s son who was turning five. The birthday boy told his mommy he wanted a cake with cars. I altered a design posted on coolest birthday cakes dot com. I selected muted tones for the frosting and I used the #16 star tip for the five in the center and the #2 round tip for the grass.
I piped almost every single blade of grass individually with the #2 tip and this is what took a large chunk of time to complete and tired my arm out a bit.
The most important thing is that it was a huge hit with the birthday boy!
