I love making my boys birthday cakes! When Austin told me he wanted a motorcycle cake, my wheels started spinning. I went to the Internet to look for ideas, but they were all in the shape of a motorcycle. So, when I found toy motorcycles at the store they were wrapped up as a birthday gift. Then once Austin opened the present, I put the motorcycles away and told him they were decoration for his cake and once he blew out his candles he could take them off the cake and play with them. He was fine with the plan.
I baked a large sheet cake and two small oval cakes. The oval cakes were attached with icing and then shaped into the hills for the cake. The "dirt" for the track was made from Graham Cracker crumbs. This was a fun and easy cake to make. And it was yummy too!
Austin turned 4 on the 24th! I can't believe that my baby is 4!!! He woke up Thursday to a surprise present waiting for him in the backyard. Sorry, that's his breakfast still in his mouth.
After an eventful morning, we went on to school and celebrated with homemade cupcakes, which Austin helped make. He was especially helpful at cleaning the icing from the beaters!
At home that night we fixed his favorite meal, Red Spaghetti! It was yummy as always.
Then the next day, Austin got to have a friend come over and play ALL DAY! They had so much fun and played outside on the new swing set, riding the jeep, playing in the sandbox and playing with the big box the swing set came it. They even had a picnic outside for lunch. Then that night for supper we invited all the family over for supper and birthday cake. So, we celebrated for two days, but what fun we had and what great memories Austin has made.
