Racing 4 Riley

It was a big weekend in our house...Riley's 4th birthday party. When I was first starting to plan his party, I was thinking a pirate theme or a beach theme. Riley on the other hand had his mind made up, and neither of my plans came close. True to himself, Riley requested a Disney Cars birthday. He loves all things Cars, with Lighting McQueen being his favorite. After some searching of Pinterest and Flickr, I was finally able to put my cake idea down on paper to be approved by Riley.  Here is what we came up with...
McQueen and a couple of his buddies on a checkered flag cake.  Riley loved it.
He really like the Cars emblem with his name on it and I was happy with how it turned out too.  Always fun when I get to bust out my edible metallic dusts.

McQueen in the winner's circle.
For the favor bags, I made some McQueen cookies. Did I mention he's Riley's favorite?
