I guess this one is special because it is my son’s birthday cake. This was his request. It didn’t matter that I had never attempted to do a car cake before. It didn’t matter to him that I told him I don’t think I can do it. He simply responded “Yes, you can mommie.”
I didn’t get nervous about this cake because it was for my son. It wasn’t for someone else’s child. When I attempt to make something for the first time for someone else I dream about it… Seriously.
If this cake was for someone else, I probably would have done it over. And I am positive that everything I learned not to do with this one would have made the next one so much better.
As you can guess I am not too happy with my Buggati car. But…in my defense, it was my first car :). I have heard how difficult car cakes can be.
I could pout and mumble and say I will never never never do this again(which I did)…but I will do it again. Maybe next time I won’t do a car that is as detailed as a Buggati…maybe I will do a Honda, a Beetle or a Lightening McQueen car. Something a bit more simple so that I can get better in time. But really, am I simple like that? I always have to take it further…
Eh….What’s so special about a Buggati anyway? I have my answer…my son. He loved his Buggati in the dessert. “Mommie! Did you know that Little Wayne has a music video with a Buggati in the dessert? … and then breaks out in song, “I can transform you, I can transform you…!”
I learn something new everyday.
