What's the best way to get an auto management team all revved up? Why, by giving them a surprise cake, courtesy of their leader! I thought it would be funny to have a tow truck towing a car on the cake, since it's their department. The cake was vanilla with vanilla Swiss meringue buttercream; the toppers were all made with fondant/gumpaste and royal icing, and lace licorice.

This was for a mommy who wanted a Thomas the train and a school bus figurines for her son's birthday (his two most favourite things). The cake was chocolate with vanilla Swiss meringue buttercream with a fondant/gumpaste top and lace licorice tracks.
Both Thomas and the bus were built from rice cereal treats, then covered and decorated with fondant/gumpaste and royal icing.
Happy Birthday, Ryan!
