Lightning McQueen Birthday Cake

Posted on September 27th, 2010 in Cakes, Cookies

The is a special post because my dear nephew (adopted by heart) celebrated his 2nd birthday. Abelito is now 2 years old and he simply loves the Disney movie Cars. I have to admit I had never seen the movie, but Matt (my hubby) rented it a couple of weeks ago. I couldn’t watch it all because I was baking, but the bits and pieces I got to watch looked very funny and cute.

Abelito’s mom, Maria (we go way back) wanted a Tres Leches cake, but here’s the deal with this delicious cake. A Tres Leches Cake is sooo incredibly moist that the delicacy and softness (not to mention deliciousness) of the cake doesn’t really allow for a a heavy frosting like buttercream or fondant. It is hard to decorate, but I did manage to have some delicious Dulce de Leche Buttercream on top. Anyway, here’s what I came up with for Abel.

Lightning McQueen Sugar Cookies for Abelito

We really had fun at the party. The food was great, the kids enjoyed the piñata & people liked the cake.

I hope you had a great birthday Abelito, we love you! Good luck to his mom, she is due with baby no. 2 anyday now…
