Vanilla and chocolate cake with a layer of chocolate icing inside.
I planned to use bright colors because that is what I think about when I think of Speed Racer. The colors turned out very crazy, but Joey loved it! (It really looked better without the bright camera flash lighting it up.)
We served Joey the very center of the cake with his name on it. He was so excited that I would cut the middle of the cake out for him.
Okay, I had to talk Ashlyn into letting me make a cake for her this year. She either couldn't decide what kind of cake or she just didn't care about it. But she finally said she wanted green, blue and purple dots all over her cake in various sizes. Usually the kids are not allowed to watch me make her cake, but Ashlyn was standing by me the whole time saying, "It's fine, mom. Just be done with it." She's so funny.
I really like the "dot" look, but next time I might try using the star tip to fill in the circles. It would be alot more work, but I think it would look better. Nevertheless, Ashlyn was happy with it.
