Ok, it’s been FOREVER since I posted and I’m SO backed up with cool cakes to share with y’all!!   I’ve done dozens of them in the past few months and I don’t even know where to start.

I was really happy with the way this Disney “Cars”-themed birthday cake and cookies for Ashton turned out last month…2-yr old Ashton is SUPER adorable and his mom Ali is the BEST!  She’s turned me on to so many of her friends and they are all great. I’m always thrilled to create cakes/cookies for Ali and her friends. (See “Fun Fact” below :0)

For the party, she wanted mostly cookies to serve to the kiddos with a small Lightening McQueen cake.

The cake is an 8″ chocolate cake with vanilla buttercream tinted bright “McQueen” red and smooth-iced.  The details on the cake are made from homemade marshmallow fondant (sorry about the focus in this pic, wanted to show the eyes but it’s a bit fuzzy :0/).

These cookies were so fun to do….we decided on a mix of really detailed McQueen/Mater designs with more simple “filler” cookies with the same theme/color palette.

This option is much more affordable when you need cookies for a large crowd!  I incorporated Ashton’s age and name onto about half of them, and the rest are simply iced and sprinkled with sanding sugar.




Fun Fact: I did Ali’s baby reveal party over 2 years ago (see pics) and knew she was having Ashton before she did!!




Hope you had a super fun 2nd birthday party, Ashton!!  

It was a blast making your goodies!!
