Finally I made it! My son’s Birthday Cake that is. He turned 3 on the 10th of August, but since I don’t have all the time in the world with 3 children including a 3 months old, this cake could not – well, I could not made it in time for his birthday. And also, we were away from home on his birthday. I see this happening every year ever since he was born, so it looks like the chances are low for my boy to have a birthday cake made by me on his actual birth day because we usually are not home in August. To make it up for him I made what he likes the most: a Car Cake, and not just a car, it is a Yellow Car, because he just loves all sort of yellow cars. To try on a Porsche…well that was just me 🙂
To make this cake I baked a large Madeira cake using 8 eggs, and I filled it with vanilla buttercream and raspberry jam. Although buttercream filling in a cake is not our favorite, it came out pretty good and everyone liked it.
