Just a quick and simple cake design for my 2-year old nephew who simply loves balls. Since majority of the guests were adults, we had a large Carrot Cake with Cream Cheese and this little ensemble of sport balls in Chocolate Cake (1kg), just for birthday formality....and pictures.
Done quite a few McQueens but this is my first Tow Mater- Lightning McQueen's sidekick and best buddy. I loved that the rusty, burnt orange came out as I planned and the towing mechanism behind was spot on. Fun to finally be doing a different vehicle from that movie...the protagonist McQueen was getting on my nerves a bit. Both vehicles are completely cakes and the birthday boy's mum chose a simple Vanilla Butter Cake for him. Finished weighing a little over 3.2kg.

This little girl is such an earth angel...she loves rainbows (last year's cake) and, flowers and, butterflies and all things that make you smile and hum. Yes, I was humming The Sound of Music's My Favourite Things while making those daisies with multi-coloured Hundreds & Thousands centres with Little Miss. And the butterflies, that is a must - she LOVES butterflies. I had initially wanted to have one large flower with butterflies fluttering over it. Changed my mind though, after thinking it would look a little weird to have many butterflies going for just one flower. So, I decided to make a bouquet of daisies using the 5-petal cake pan. Lined the sides with probably over a hundred green stems made out of sugar paste and some 35 white daisies on it. This Butter Cake finished weighing just 1.8kg.
