Sammy’s 4th Birthday and an Awesome “Cars 2” Cake!

Yesterday was Sammy’s birthday, but we celebrated it today at our local Chuck E Cheese.  My little boy is now 4 years old!!!  Crazy how the time flies by!  Well, I have been talking with my boyfriend’s mom for a little while now about the cake she wanted to make for Sam’s birthday.  She made him the most awesome character cake I’ve ever seen!  It was 3 layers with fondant on the outside and a special surprise on the inside of the bottom layer (Mater).

Sammy was so surprised when she showed him the cake!  He immediately pointed out the different characters that made up the cake.  He pointed to Mater at the bottom, Lightning McQueen, and Dr. Z.  He couldn’t believe this cake was made just for him!

Now for the bottom layer of the cake.  It was described to me over the phone, but when I saw it in person, it wasn’t anything close to what I imagined it would be!  It was more awesome than I imagined it would be…..and tasty!  I have never tried making a cake like this before, but it was pretty awesome and I would love to try it out some day.

Sammy was really excited to open his gifts and couldn’t wait to play with them.  He definitely had a really good birthday party this year!  Thank you to our family and friends who came and celebrated with us!

The cake was designed by Helen Swarts and inspired by Emi’s Confections.  Helen did an amazing job and I can’t wait to see other cakes she makes in the future!
