"Whi-mean Ma-Qweennn"

I have to brag for a minute... It was my nephew Chase's birthday today and his favorite thing ever is "Whi-mean Ma-Qweeennn!" So my sister bought a Lightening McQueen cake pan...and I did the rest. Yes there were instructions on how to do this but I free-handed it ALL! And if I do say so myself, it turned out pretty dang cute!
I was so thankful Shani was there to help though. She made frosting, colored it and kept putting the frosting in bags for me. I bought a cake decorating kit off of Amazon because I want to be one of those mom's that makes my kids birthday and special occasion cakes. I had never tried anything before and my mom suggested I take a class first. But it looks like I kind of self-taught myself. How hard can it be, right?

Shani is famously named "The Treat Aunt." Why? Because in order to be the favorite but also to keep fussy, neglected children quiet when their mother has ignored them for 3 hours to decorate a cake, she gives them treats. In this case, frosting beaters....dipped over and over in frosting. Thank you little sister for giving my child a sugar high. You won the title of "favorite" today!
