Lucas's Car Birthday
























This past Sunday we got together with all the family in town and had us a car themed party for my nephew Lucas who just turned two. I had the honor of making the race car track cake. In the bottom left picture is me with my two helpers Christian and Isabelle, my nephew and niece. We thought the cake turned out pretty well. We used chocolate cookie crumbs for the race track and green colored coconut for the grass which ended up tasting really good with the white cake and pudding filling. My sister Darleen decorated my parents home with black and white checkered flags and table runners that were over red, green, and yellow table covers. The kids got to paint wooden tractors, trains, and cars. All the kids loved it especially the little man himself, Lucas. The picture below may not show the pure enjoyment he had at the party but that is because I caught him right after his nap before the festivities began. He still is so cute.

Marleen! Thanks for all your help. You were a lifesaver and moneysaver. The cake turned out really good, and I was actually craving for a slice the other day.

Awesome cake! I love that the track is in the shape of a 2. Nice work!
ps. I cut Jordan's hair Sunday night. I just used some clippers; it looks a little sloppy, but I don't care... It's short again!! Yea!

Adorable cake! Love it. And you guys weren't shafted. I did have some tickets reserved for you, but I didn't end up asking cause I knew you all were very busy that day. Sorry. Maybe I should've asked.
