Owen's birthday cake

14:42 Edit This 3 Comments »
Tomorrow is Owen's 2nd birthday - I can't believe how quickly the past two years have gone and what a big boy he is becoming! As it's the 4th of July we're having an american themed bbq for him and his cake is a yellow american school bus. I made 2 lemon loaf cakes from a recipe that google found on the woman and home website. I then trimmed one side of one of the cakes, whacked them on top of each other and covered them with a thin layer of white buttercream.

After 15 minutes I covered the whole bus in yellow buttercream and added some mini donuts to make the wheels:

I then cut some ready rolled icing out to make the windows and added a cutout photo of Owen being the bus driver:

Finally I used a black icing pen, some smarties and some fruit pastilles to decorate the bus, and added some photos of Owen's friends as the passengers:

I can't wait to see his reaction in the morning!
