Kicks on Route 66

Here are the cakes my co-workers wanted me to make for them for a baby shower.  They had decided that the theme was going to be travel and cars.  The mom to be was decorating the nursery with cars.

They asked if I could make Route 66 sign in the colors of a blanket that was bought for the nursery. So, I went to work on a cake.

The Route 66 Cake is a two layer, one tier chocolate cake with chocolate buttercream covered in marshmallow fondant.  The details are also done in fondant.

They also asked me to make a smaller cake for the big brother so he felt special at the baby shower as well.  We decided on a license plate.

The license plate cake for the big brother is a two layer, one tier white confetti cake with plain buttercream covered in marshmallow fondant.  The details are all fondant except the word Texas and the name of the big brother.  Here is a picture of the cakes at the shower.  I was told that several commented at how well they liked the cakes.

Those are fantastic! I love that there's also a cake for the big brother. My mother would always give a special gift to me or my brother when it was the other one's birthday and this reminds me of that.
