Lightning Queen Cake

The little benjamin of our grandchildren, Ryan, had his 3rd birthday Saturday. His Dad had organised a private pool party and everybody enjoyed it.
I was asked as usual, to bake the cake and made the Lightning Queen (Cars). I used the Frozen Butter Cream Transfer again as I did with the Iron Man cake last year. Only I added cream cheese to the butter cream this time. This freezes and thawes well also, without the colors bleeding.
For the cake I used a carrot/banana cake recipe.
The cake was gone in a minute.

I really like this FBCT technique. It's easy but time consuming though.
My daughter likes to try out different cake recipes and she made two cakes as well:
a chocolate brownie cake:
and a lemon cake:
And then it was time to blow the candles
Mommy cuts the cake:
And I'm the first one to eat my piece
Then it was time to swim

The carrot cake recipe can be found here.

  1. very clever Geke doing those icing transfers I'd say. Looks like another very successful party!
