Someone in our house will celebrate his second birthday very soon. My mom extended her stay for a little over a week so we decided to take on a cake making project together – it is the Williams Sonoma Cars 2 Mini-Cakes. It is a multi-step process and one that involved some research. The cake baking directions are included with the pan from Williams Sonoma and the icing directions are something I found on their blog: Decorate Cars 2 Cakelets. The cake batter on the recipe is delicious and all of the directions include make-at-home batter and frosting. In fact, I highly recommend you follow the icing instructions on the blog as it allows you to pour the icing over each car making it easier to coat. For the piping, I bought some small pre-filled applicators at the store to save time and money. I plan to freeze the little cakes and defrost them a day or so before his party. Directions on how to freeze can be found at Wikihow to Freeze-Cakes.

|Pre-filled applicators helped with the primary colors and candy eyes made those super-quick to apply. I followed the directions on the blog for the brown and black icing by mixing in chocolate for the brown and a store bought black.|
