Today my nephew had his 4th birthday party and I had the honor of making his cake. His dad and stepmom (which sounds weird to call her that because she is my hubby's sister and I don't think I have ever called her his stepmom before!) bought me a fancy cupcake book for Christmas and I decided I needed to make him the racecar cake because he is a car fanatic! Well, he really wanted a Mario cake. Even before I considered it, I said I could make Mario out of fondant. I have absolutely never made anything out of fondant before but I had a picture and pure determination and was successful at making a Mario head for the racecar.
Here is the whole racecar cake with the birthday boy.
My husband really wanted to get Reese a good Nerf football for his birthday, so we stuck with the sports theme and got him a tee-ball glove and a Cincinnati Reds squishy bat and ball. Of course, I had to make a sports themed card to match.
Here are a few more pictures at the party when some of us snuck outside to use the new toys.
