must have wheels

As a mom of two boys, I’m constantly drawn to any party ideas or food ideas that revolve around the things they love… critters, sports and oh yes… wheels. With that in mind, here are a few boy inspired cakes.

The first three are from Parenting.com and the second set are from FamilyFun.com. You can get all the details and templates by following the links. Happy baking!
