turning 4

My youngest just turned four, that makes me feel really old. I am no longer the cute young mom toting the chubby baby, but the old Mom getting harassed by preteens for their own cell phone. But, on the bright side I can usually go to the store alone and that is a definite plus.
My little fella is all about cars (especially the movie Cars) so when I saw this cake in Family Fun magazine I decided to give it a try. The scale on mine is a bit whacked- as you can see. The donut wheels were the real problem, I couldn't find the right size. All the chocolate donut hotspots (convenience stores) only had the tiny Donette chocolate donuts in the 6 pack, you know- the ones you eat only on a road trip- or these full-sized ones, conveniently also at the gas station. So the tractor ended up looking like a tough low rider, but the birthday boy and all the other small ones at the party were impressed and that's what matters.

I think you need to make this for a certain brother for his birthday next year.

Soo Cute! Cake decorating is much harder than it looks, you did an awsome job. I have a nephew who would love that cake.
